Celebrate Ebertfest with New Video, Get Your Passes For 2016 Now

Ebertfest is an event like no other. It is a celebration of not just cinema but the power it has to create community and conversation. We come together in the heartland of America every April to watch films from around the world, listen to the people who made them and leave inspired at the art form that Roger Ebert helped define. Roger Ebert's legacy is not just on film criticism but the medium of film itself, and the way we appreciate it. Listen to the filmmakers and actors discuss how his work inspired them to find their passions. It's not just criticism that owes a debt to Roger Ebert, but the entire film industry, and that's just one of many things we celebrate every April. The 18th festival will take place from April 13 to April 17, 2016 and passes are on sale now. Enjoy the video below from Shatterglass Studios featuring interviews with Jason Segel, Chazz Palminteri, James Ponsoldt, Heloise Godet, Matt Zoller Seitz, Brian Tallerico, and many more. Also, please read "Ebertfest 2015: Roger, You Would Approve!" by Chaz Ebert, "Filmgoing At Its Best" by Leonard Maltin and "Can Ebertfest Survive Without Roger Ebert?" by Sam Fragoso.
