"Life Itself" Will Play at Sundance

We've been keeping you posted about Kartemquin Films' new documentary "Life Itself," which is inspired by Roger's memoir of the same name. We told you about their decision to use an Indiegogo campaign to raise completion funding to get the people who loved Roger involved. We offered you an exclusive advance look at a video message from director Steve James, who is finishing up the editing of the film.

LIFE ITSELF - uniting a community of Roger Ebert fans from Kartemquin Films on Vimeo.

Now we're pleased to announce that the film will have its World Premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, January 16–26. And here's a cool bonus for people who contribute as part of the Indiegogo campaign, which is currently scheduled to end January 13:

The film will also be viewable via private stream simultaneous with the world premiere screening exclusively to backers of the film’s Indiegogo campaign . Supporters will also have an opportunity to participate in an interactive Q&A with the filmmakers, and other luminaries close to Roger, via live stream.

That's one more reason to go to Indiegogo and contribute.
