Emotionally charged, viscerally exciting and consistently enlightening, Gabe Polsky’s Red Army is a sports documentary like no other.
Join us at Ebertfest (Roger Ebert's Film Festival) at the Virginia Theatre, sponsored by the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, April 23-27! Last spring's festival was a touching celebration of Roger's life, complete with Tilda Swinton leading the crowd in a little spontaneous dancing.
This year promises a wonderful lineup of films. As you know, Roger left a list of many films he felt were gems and wanted to shine a light on, and the amazing Ebertfest team has been hard at work making the magic happen. As in the past, we will have a great mix of the old and new with some selections also curated by me and Festival Director, Nate Kohn. We are bringing guests in from all over who promise to make your experience something special. We will announce our complete line-up of films in March, as usual.
Festival passes are on sale now, and they go fast. Individual tickets don't go on sale until April 1st, but plan ahead. Find festival passes and more information here.
