The College of Media at Illinois presents:

The 17th Annual Roger Ebert’s Film Festival!

April 15th-19th

Held every April inside downtown Champaign’s Historic Virginia Theatrea restored movie palace with state-of-the-art 35/70mm and digital projection.  REFF celebrates films that haven’t received the recognition they deserved during their original runs, giving these films and their filmmakers a well-deserved second look.

Staying true to Roger’s vision, the twelve films screened during the five day event represent a cross-section of important cinematic works overlooked by audiences, critics and/or distributors. Some of the films come from lists Roger drew up over the first 15 years of the festival.  Additional films are selected based on Roger’s established criteria for an Ebertfest film. 

You can also watch the film panel discussions live.  How cool is that?!

Patrons buying a festival pass will receive a confirmation ticket for each pass they purchase. Confirmation tickets must then be exchanged for an actual pass – the ones you wear on a lanyard around your neck. The actual festival passes will become available for pick up at the Virginia Theatre box office beginning Monday, April 13, 2015.
