      Roger Ebert’s Film Festival celebrates films, genres, and formats that have been overlooked by distributors, audiences, and/or critics. These include independent, international, and studio films that did not win wide audiences; overlooked formats such as 70mm; and overlooked genres such as documentaries and musicals. The festival screens one film at a time, so everyone sees the same films at the same time, promoting a strong sense of community among audience members, filmmakers, guests, students, and scholars.

      It was founded by Roger Ebert, an Urbana native, U of I journalism graduate, and Pulitzer Prize-winning film critic for the Chicago Sun-Times.

      As well as pass and ticket sales, Roger Ebert’s Film Festival relies on generous gifts from donors and sponsors. Gifts of all sizes are vital to the festival and can be made as an option among the funding choices at The College of Media’s website: https://media.illinois.edu/giving/give-nowBecome a sponsor!
