RENO — After careful review and consideration, evaluation of the past 12 years’ performances and economic conditions, including grant availability, the board of directors of the Reno Film Festival has voted unanimously to cease operation and dissolve the organization effective June 30.

“Naturally we’re very sorry to make this announcement,” festival President Scott Birmingham said in a press release. “But the current board—and speaking for past volunteer boards through the years—is very proud of the films, competitions, seminars and programs we’ve brought to our area for more than a decade. Looking back, we’ve hosted a ‘who’s who’ of those involved in the film industry to interact with local and visiting film fans.”

Screenings of the finalists in the Lumiere All School Film Fest, the Reno Film Festival’s competition for elementary to some college level students, will take place as scheduled May 16-18. The location for these evening screenings will be announced on the festival’s website, and all three screenings will be free, courtesy of a grant from the DP Foundation.
