April's CineFest canceled.


The Philadelphia Cinema Alliance announced today that the April 8-19 Philadelphia CineFest has been canceled.

PCA Development Director Thom Cardwell says the festival will return in 2011 and that a lack of corporate and government sponsorship made “the fiscal planning of the event too daunting.”

CineFest debuted last spring under the helm of TLA Video owner Ray Murray, the artistic director of the Philadelphia Film Festival for nine years, after a falling out with Philadelphia Film Society executive director J. Andrew Greenblatt, which led to two festivals, CineFest in April and Greenblatt’s camp staging the Philadelphia Film Festival in September.

“As the original organization responsible for bringing the beauty and depth of film to the masses in Philadelphia, we are confident in our ability to produce a movie festival in 2011 that honors this tradition," Murray said.
