Roger Ebert’s Film Festival
celebrates films, genres, and formats that have been overlooked by distributors, audiences, and/or critics. These include independent, international, and studio films that did not win wide audiences, overlooked formats such as 70mm, and overlooked genres such as documentaries and musicals.

The festival screens one film at a time – so that everyone sees the same films – promoting a strong sense of community among audience members, filmmakers, guests, students, and scholars.

It was founded by Roger Ebert, an Urbana native, U of I journalism graduate, and Pulitzer Prize-winning film critic for the Chicago Sun-Times.
