Overlooked Film Fest Photo Album

Updated: Monday, April 25: The seventh Roger Ebert's Overlooked Film Festival got off to a thunderous start -- both inside the theater and outside -- in Urbana-Champaign Wednesday, April 20. Ebert himself received the University of Illinois Chancellor's medal from newly chosen U of I chancellor Richard Herman, and a restored 70mm print of Jacques Tati's 1967 "Playtime" was showcased at the Virginia Theatre, while the midwestern skies provided their own shadowplay and sound effects outside. The festival concluded Sunday, April 24, with a matinee screening of the Bollywood musical "Taal" starring Aishwarya Rai.
