LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Little Rock Film Festival is ending a nine-year run after failing to generate enough money to hire a full-time executive director.

The festival’s organizers said Wednesday that the co-founders also have schedules that are too full to keep the festival running. Its last event was in May.

Festival spokesman Matt DeCample said the festival is, in general, a “break-even enterprise” but that it couldn’t afford a full-time director that could give it a stable foundation.

Filmmakers Craig and Brent Renaud co-founded the festival. The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette newspaper said Wednesday (https://bit.ly/1M2nWYt ) that the brothers had told a number of people involved with the festival in recent days that they would shut it down.
