What Céline Sciamma is interested in is "moments." There are many moments that linger in the mind long after the film has ended.

Statue of Roger Ebert to Be Unveiled on Second Day of Ebertfest

It was announced this week that the life-size bronze sculpture of Roger Ebert that will reside outside of the Virginia Theatre in Champaign, Illinois will take its place on Thursday, April 24, 2014 at noon. Donna and Scott Anderson will reveal the statue to the public at that time. Donna Anderson drove the creation of the statue (created by artist Rick Harney) and Scott Anderson has been instrumental in raising the funding for its creation, still resting $25,000 short of his goal as of Friday. You can help finance the sculpture by clicking here.

The campaign to pay for the sculpture of Roger has really picked up steam in recent weeks, according to Anderson, with a $3,000 pledge from Beyond Normal Films. Martin Scorsese donated $5,000 earlier in the process. The contract with the artist allowed for the creation and unveiling of the statue before its fully funded but the Andersons hope to reach their goal over Ebertfest, which includes appearances by Brie Larson, Patton Oswalt, Spike Lee, Oliver Stone, Ramin Bahrani, and many more.
