One of our favorite film festivals on the film festival calendar is opening, and we're not being ironic or raising our eyebrows or making air quotes around the word "favorite."
You've probably picked up on the fest's sunny straightforwardness from its name. It does in fact seek to promote "the development, production, and distribution of short and feature-length films with happy endings..."
On the 2010 slate is the cheeky-looking "How to Make Love to a Woman"; "Ashley's Ashes," about a mysterious inheritance; and the opening night feature "Father vs. Son."
