While some film festivals have long since started to feel like elite networking clubs, the Gen Art Film Festival brings the focus back on cinema—and without the intimidation factor. With 14 films from across the U.S. and Canada—and some serious after-parties attached—there may be a handful of Tinseltowners about, but this time they’ll be hanging with you. Tonight’s 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.
