Matt writes: The 20th anniversary of Ebertfest will kick off tomorrow, April 18th, and run through Sunday, April 22nd, at the Virginia Theatre in Champaign, Illinois. Andrew Davis' classic edge-of-your-seat thriller, "The Fugitive," will open the festival, which features other beloved titles including "American Splendor" and "The Big Lebowski," as well as such trailblazing filmmakers as Ava DuVernay, Julie Dash, Amma Asante, Martha Coolidge and many more.

Sheila writes: Filmmaker (and Ebertfest favorite) Ramin Bahrani has directed a new documentary short called "Lift You Up," profiling a man named Glyn Stewart. Bahrani met Stewart in a food bank while filming a commercial in North Carolina, and knew he wanted to make a film about him. In an interview on Rogerebert.com, Bahrani says, "I liked him immediately. He had an electric personality. He was so intent on laughing and hugging everyone, that I assumed he must be harboring a profound sadness. I wanted to know why." You can read the full interview with Bahrani, as well as view "Lift You Up" over on Rogerebert.com.
