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.

Sheila writes: The Ebertfest 2015 lineup has been announced! Chaz writes, "This year as we approach the second anniversary of your transition and the third Ebertfest without you, we decided to bring it all back to the character studies that you loved so much... The films that tell stories about something, about who we are and why it is important to have empathy for each other. And you loved showing them in our gorgeous movie palace, the Virginia Theater, projected on the mega screen by the improbably named James Bond. We invited back some of the filmmakers you admired, like Ramin Bahrani and James Ponsoldt. Roger, you would love this line-up!" Check out Chaz's full essay here. We hope to see many of you at Ebertfest!
