Ebertfest

Writer/director Steve James’ documentary portrait of the late, great film critic Roger Ebert, "Life Itself," is now a top Best Documentary Feature Oscar contender, and in spirit, here’s an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at last year’s Ebertfest, which continues to be held annually in his honor. The fest showcases films new and old, including many of Roger’s favorites. The fest is now approaching its 17th year.

Passes for Ebertfest 2015 (April 15-19) in Champaign, IL — at its home base The Virginia Theatre — are now on sale.
