2009 Gen Art Film Festival Line Up Revealed

Today, Gen Art Film Festival presented by Acura announced the line up for their annual seven-day shindig of one feature, one short and one par-tay per day to take place at the newly refurbished Visual Arts Theater, which The Film Panel Notetaker recently visited. Derick Martini’s Lymelife with a star-studded cast including 30 Rock’s Alec Baldwin, a couple of Culkins, Cynthia Nixon and more opens the fest on April 1, along with Topaz Adizes’ short Trece Años, which premiered at Sundance back in January.

Check out my notes from the 2007 Gen Art Film Fest Panel, Media Ecology, which I put in my top 10 panels of that year. Will this year's panel live up to that highly informative moment in notetaking history? Only time will tell. Panels taking place at the festival this year are expected to be announced soon. In the mean time, please peruse the feature and short slate below.
