The plug has been pulled on the 2010 CineVegas Film Festival, Indiewire‘s Peter Knegt reported earlier today. The Great Recession has turned Las Vegas into a City of Hard Times, and it would seem that festival chiefs Robin Greenspun and Trevor Groth were basically told “sorry, guys” by the Palms Resort & Casino, which has hosted the festival for the last several years. I could tell that the festival was trimming back slightly in ’08 and a bit more so last June. I hope that things rebound.
