Be a Critic for a Day: "Life Itself" Campaign Has a Cool New Offer

We've been keeping you posted on the making of "Life Itself", a doc about Roger based on his memoir of the same name. They've got a campaign to raise completion funds on Indiegogo. That money will be used for the post-production costs. You can contribute to the campaign here. It's a chance to be a part of the making of this film, and they have some really cool incentives, like the chance to livestream the film when it premieres as the Sundance Film Festival.

Well, they've added a cool new incentive. The person who refers the most contributors to the campaign between January 7 and January 13 will get a chance to write a film review for Roger's newspaper home, the Chicago Sun-Times. Read all the details here.

And if you want to see the film with an audience, they've added several new opportunities. The film will be shown in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on February 9th, with director Steve James on hand to talk abut the film (read more about that here). And on February 10th, the film comes to Chicago's Gene Siskel Film Center. This will be a very special screening in the city Roger Called home. Steve James and others will be there to talk abut the film. A limited number of tickets are available only through a $100 contribution to the campaign. Expect this special event to sell out.

We here at RogerEbert.com are very excited, counting down the days until the film screens at Sundance. We're sure you are too.
