Gen Art is celebrating its fifteenth annual film festival with another slate of indie pics and happening after-parties unlike those thrown by any other organization. Each night matches one film with an after-party, all for one price. Josh Radnor’s HAPPYTHANKYOUMOREPLEASE gets things going at the Ziegfeld on April 7, followed by a bash at the Park, but that’s already sold out. The screenings then move to the Visual Arts Theater for the rest of the week, which includes the April 9 pairing of Sebastian Gutierrez’s ELEKTRA LUXX and Vaughn Juares’s short BLOWING BUBBLES, followed by a party at Hudson Terrace. Tickets are also still available for Alexandre Franchi’s THE WILD HUNT and a soirée at Juliet Supper Club on April 11, Francesca Gregorini & Tatiana Von Furstenberg’s TANNER HALL and Avenue party on April 12, and Patrick Hoelck’s MERCY and a final-night blowout at BLVD on April 13. Also on April 11, all seven shorts will be screened for free, followed by an open Q&A with many of the filmmakers; admission is free but advance RSVP is required. Seven nights, seven features, seven shorts, and seven parties should make for quite a sweet fifteen, all with an emphasis on love.
