While some film festivals have long since started to feel like elite networking clubs, the Gen Art Film Festival brings the focus back on cinemaand without the intimidation factor. With 14 films from across the U.S. and Canadaand some serious after-parties attachedthere may be a handful of Tinseltowners about, but this time theyll be hanging with you. Tonights feature film, Diminished Capacity, is a comedy about a down-and-out newspaper editor with a concussion, his borderline-senile homeless uncle, and a very bankable baseball card that brings them together. The film stars Matthew Broderick, Alan Alda, and Virginia Madsen.
