The Ebertfest film festival has released an exclusive new documentary that looks back on last year’s 17th iteration of the festival. The video provides a retrospective of last year’s collection of films and features appearances from Chaz Ebert, James Ponsoldt and Jason Segel.

Ebertfest, now in its 18th year, was founded by beloved critic Roger Ebert in Urbana-Champaign, Illinois. The festival focuses on films that were overlooked by critics, audiences and distributors.

The full lineup for the festival will be released a few weeks before it begins on April 13th. Festival passes can be purchased on Ebertfest’s official website. This year’s Ebertfest will be run from April 13-17, 2016 at the Virginia Theatre in Champaign, Illinois. Related talks and panel discussions will be held at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
