Festival kicks off June 8 at the Ziegfeld Theatre

Jonathan Sobol’s comedy “A Beginner’s Guide to Endings” opens this year’s Gen Art Film Festival, the 16th anni of the New York City fest that premieres one feature and one short from promising filmmakers for seven consecutive nights.

Fest kicks off June 8 at the Ziegfeld Theater with “Endings,” and closes with “Salvation Boulevard.”

Slate includes “Yelling to the Sky,” “Norman,” “Goold’s Gold,” “The Pill” and “American Animal.”

GAFF’s calling card is its nightly afterparties, where moviegoers mingle with filmmakers and stars.

“The Gen Art Film Festival provides incredible talent on the rise a dedicated spotlight and a unique opportunity to engage with an audience that will eagerly join their fan base,” said co-prexy Jeffrey Abramson. “This year’s slate reflects great diversity in style and subject matter and reaffirms that the art of independent filmmaking is thriving.”
