Film Festivals On The Brink And Over The Edge

user
I had to do a double-take when I saw the headline yesterday: GEN ART TO CLOSE ITS DOORS AFTER SIXTEEN YEARS. The Gen Art organization, which organizes networking and exhibition events for film, music and fashion in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago and several other cities, is closing its doors? After what was an amazingly successful New York festival just two weeks ago? Well, the news apparently is true and joins a wave of bad news for specialized events around the USA (and probably the wor...

Adrian Grenier Takes On The Paparazzi

user
  "I am not a celebrity, but I play one on television", actor Adrien Grenier wagged from the stage at the School of Visual Arts Theater last night after the presentation of his documentary film TEENAGE PAPARAZZO at the Gen Art Film Festival in New York. Grenier, best known for his role as young movie star Vincent Chase in the Hollywood buddy comedy ENTOURAGE, has had his own run with the paparazzi, the aggressive photo hounds who are desperate to catch an unposed photo of cel...

Sundance Audience Favorite Opens Gen Art FF

user
  Some might say that the most prized award given at the Sundance Film Festival is the public prize. Winners of the Audience Award, as opposed to winners of the juried competitions, tend to indicate an innate audience appreciation that speaks volumes to film distributors and critics. In that light, tonight's Opening Film at the 15th Gen Art Film Festival is bound to be a crowd pleaser. HappyThankYouMorePlease is the directorial debut of actor Josh Radnor, best known for his role o...

Gen Art Film Festival Celebrates 15th Anniversary

user
  It has been a decade and a half since Gen Art, the nationwide networking organization devoted to art, fashion, music and movies, first launched a New York-based film festival to highlight works from emerging American independent artists. But different from other festivals of a similar stripe, the Gen Art concept was quite simple: seven films shown over seven nights with audience members invited to an after-party at a hot club or restaurant each evening. This winning formu...

 Wednesday, April 2------One film/one party…..it’s a formula that has served the Gen Art Film Festival well during the last dozen years. Well, the film + party theme kicks off again this evening, as the 13th Annual Gen Art Film Festival begins a week-long showcase of the best of new American independent cinema.

Toronto Party Central

 Monday, September 10---------Toronto, like any major film festival on the circuit, is as much about the parties as it is the films. Parties are, after all, the place to meet up and schmooze, seen and be seen, and, one might argue, are the perks after a day of slogging between screening rooms. While it is physically impossible to attend every event  (or even get an invitation to them all), I try and do my share.    The US distributors give some of this town's most stellar soirees, with outs...

Interview with Rob Stewart the director of Sharkwater

user
When nature photographer and master diver Rob Stewart began his project to document the beauty of sharks in their natural underwater environment, little did he realize that his innate fascination would bring him into conflict with governments and organized crime who profit from the mass killing of these endangered animals. With shark fins prized as a delicacy and shark cartilage falsely promoted as a cure-all for disease and impotence, the illegal killing of sharks around the world has created a...

Gen Art Film Festival a toasty alternative to the lingering winter chill

user
The torrential downpour had not yet quite started on the Festival opening night on Wednesday, with the New York premiere of CRASHING, a literature-meets-pornography tale of a grizzled novelist (played to fare-thee-well perfection by New York's own Campbell Scott) who flirts with sex and artistic inspiration (not necessarily in that order) as he crashes on the coach of two female students who are themselves aspiring novelists. The film drew a strong response from the capacity crowd (so large that...

A Respite From The Rain at Gen Art Film Festival

Friday, April 13------If the theory that shitty weather is good for film festivals holds true, then the time is perfect for this year's Gen Art Film Festival. Although the calendar says mid April, Spring is decidely late this year, with massive rainstorms and temperatures well below normal bursting the bubbles of New Yorkers ready for the winter thaw. So, with the weather inclement, the heat generated from packed screenings and even more crowded after-parties are making this year's Gen A...

The Festival, celebrating its 12th year, has the winning formula of presenting one film premiere a night, followed by after-parties at some of New York's trendiest night spots. CRASHING, which also stars Lizzy Capla...
