The 14th annual Gen Art Film Festival, held at the Visual Art Theater in New York, will kick off April 1 with opening-night film "Lymelife."

Directed by Derick Martini, who co-wrote it with his brother Stephen, the film stars Alec Baldwin, Cynthia Nixon, Jill Hennessy, Emma Roberts, Kieran Culkin, Rory Culkin and Timothy Hutton.

The fest will feature seven features and seven shorts from emerging filmmakers.

The Martini brothers are Gen Art alums, having co-written "Goat on Fire and Smiling Fish," which premiered at the 2000 GAFF.

"It is incredibly exciting to continue to support our alumni filmmakers as they grow in their careers and as artists," Film Division vp Jeffrey Abramson said.
