July 14-24

In the July 11 IBJ, my Lou’s Views column featured some picks from this year’s festival. Here’s one (for the rest, spring for a paper).

“Conception” (screening July 16, 22): Don’t look for storks in this playfully detailed omnibus film about nine couples on the brink of insemination (by one means or another). That writer/director Josh Stolberg can juggle all the stories—and keep most of them interesting—should make this a strong calling card for future film work. More important, for audiences, this could be the perfect festival introduction, with familiar faces (Julie Bowen from “Modern Family,” David Arquette, Jonathan Silverman and the always solid Alan Tudyk from “Firefly”) mixed with lesser-knowns. I’m not sure if I’d recommend it for a first date, but other mature audiences should connect with “Conception.”

There’s a lot more to choose from. See a full schedule here.
