‘Dropping’ and ‘Urbania’ bookend Gen Art Festival

Alumni Award going to 'Wonderland's' Brad Anderson

Mark Osborne’s “Dropping Out” will kick off and Jon Shear’s “Urbania,” which was acquired last week by Unapix, will close the fifth annual Gen Art Film Festival.

Fest runs April 26 to May 2 at Sony Theaters Lincoln Square and Worldwide Plaza Cinema.

Gen Art’s feature film lineup includes Adrienne Shelly’s comedy “I’ll Take You There,” starring Ally Sheedy in a story about a romantically starved woman who does not take rejection well; “What Happened to Tully,” a coming-of-age story based on Tom MacNeal’s short story; Kevin Jordan’s “Goat on Fire and Smiling Fish,” a comedy about two brothers who can’t get into heartfelt relationships; “The Operator,” Jon Dichter’s revenge tale of a Dallas attorney who crosses a telephone operator; and Matthew Huffman’s “Playing Mona Lisa,” starring Alicia Witt (“Urban Legend”) as a pianist who trades Tchaikovsky for partying. Features will be followed by shorts and a premiere party at which ticket holders will be able to mix with filmmakers.

Anderson award

Fest will close May 2 with the presentation of the Gen Art Alumni Award to Brad Anderson (“Next Stop Wonderland”), whose debut feature “The Darien Gap” preemed at the first Gen Art Film Festival.

Founded in 1993 by Ian and Stefan Gerard, Gen Art has in previous years shown the Lili Taylor-Guy Pearce starrer “A Slipping Down Life,” “Six Ways to Sunday” and “Oxygen.” For ticket information visit www.genart.org or call (212) 279-4200.
