Molly Kreuzman, the coordinator of the Cinema Columbus film festival, says she knows she’s watching a well-made film when she doesn’t get distracted by questions of craft. “It’s as much about what’s there as what sort of falls away and you don’t have to think, ‘Oh, that was a rough edit,’ or ‘Gee, that sound makes no sense.’”

“It’s a kind of seamlessness,” she says.

That’s what Kreuzman saw when she first screened the film that will open the festival, “Linoleum,” which will be shown at the Southern Theatre on April 27. “I was immediately drawn in,” Kreuzman says. “It is an absolutely extraordinary ride.”

The story of the host of a failing TV science show for kids who decides to build a rocket in his garage, “Linoleum” is set in a fictional Ohio town and was created by three Upper Arlington High School graduates, writer and director Colin West and producers Chadd Harbold and Chad Simpson. The screening will be followed by a live Q&A featuring West, Simpson, actor Amy Hargreaves and, in a nod to the film’s science content, COSI CEO Frederic Bertley.
