Ebertfest 2014 Is Bringing Oliver Stone, Steve James and Patton Oswalt

Ebertfest today announced three of the titles and three special guests for this year's festival, which takes place at the Virginia Theatre in Champaign, IL, April 23–27. Oliver Stone will be at the festival to present a screening of his film "Born on the Fourth of July" to mark the film's twenty-fifth anniversary.

It comes as no surprise but happy news nonetheless that Steve James will be on hand to screen "Life Itself", the documentary based on Roger Ebert's memoir.

And actor and comedian Patton Oswalt will attend and discuss "Young Adult", the 2011 Jason Reitman film in which Oswalt appeared alongside Charlize Theron and Patrick Wilson

A complete line-up will be announced soon. Festival passes are available now, and individual tickets go on sale April 1st. Go to Ebertfest.com for more information or to buy passes.
