The 15th Anniversary of the Gen Art Film Festival kicks off tomorrow night at the Ziegfeld Theatre with Josh Radnor’s ("How I Met Your Mother") writing/directing debut happythankyoumoreplease, which was shot here in New York and won the Sundance Audience Award. Spoiler? The movie "focuses on several 20-something relationships in the city." Other screenings during the week-long indie festival include Elektra Luxx, about a former adult film actress as she shifts her moves from the bedroom to the classroom; Tanner Hall, "a coming-of-age tale steeped in secrecy, desire and adolescent complexity" and set in a New England all-girls boarding school, andMercy, which features James Caan and Dylan McDermott in a story about "a successful young romance novelist who doesn't believe in love—or so he thinks. When he meets a beautiful and mysterious book critic named Mercy, his theories are put to the test." Drama button!

Gen Art is one of the most manageable film festivals, because it showcases just seven features and seven shorts from emerging filmmakers. It's also refreshingly non-exclusive; tickets are $30 for non-members and include a pre-screening reception and admission to the after-party, which is typically packed with plenty of photogenic young things. After tomorrow night's Ziegfeld premiere, the remaining screenings will take place at the Visual Arts Theater at 333 West 23rd Street; the parties this year go down in a variety of venues, from Hudson Terrace to Amnesia.
