Sheila writes: The Ebertfest 2015 lineup has been announced! Chaz writes, "This year as we approach the second anniversary of your transition and the third Ebertfest without you, we decided to bring it all back to the character studies that you loved so much... The films that tell stories about something, about who we are and why it is important to have empathy for each other. And you loved showing them in our gorgeous movie palace, the Virginia Theater, projected on the mega screen by the improbably named James Bond. We invited back some of the filmmakers you admired, like Ramin Bahrani and James Ponsoldt. Roger, you would love this line-up!" Check out Chaz's full essay here. We hope to see many of you at Ebertfest!

Marie writes: There was a time when Animation was done by slaves with a brush in one hand and a beer in the other. Gary Larson's "Tales From the Far Side" (1994) was such a project. I should know; I worked on it. Produced by Marv Newland at his Vancouver studio "International Rocketship", it first aired as a CBS Halloween special (Larson threw a party for the crew at the Pan Pacific Hotel where we watched the film on a big screen) and was later entered into the 1995 Annecy International Animated Film Festival, where it won the Grand Prix. It spawned a sequel "Tales From the Far Side II" (1997) - I worked on that too. Here it is, below.

PRESS RELEASE: CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- Terrence Malick's 1978 film "Days of Heaven" won an Oscar for best cinematography, and Roger Ebert likely found that no surprise. It is "above all one of the most beautiful films ever made," Ebert said in a 1997 review. So it's only appropriate that the film will open the 15th annual Roger Ebert's Film Festival on April 17 in the big-screen, newly renovated Virginia Theater in downtown Champaign.
