The Fugitive directed by Andrew Davis, and starring Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones, will open this year’s 20th anniversary celebration of Roger Ebert’s Film Festival, co-founded and hosted by Chaz Ebert and also known as ‘Ebertfest.”
NAME OF FESTIVAL: Ebertfest
WHERE: Champaign, Illinois, United States
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL: Founded in 1999 by the late Roger Ebert, University of Illinois Journalism graduate and Pulitzer Prize-winning film critic, Roger Ebert’s Film Festival (Ebertfest) celebrates films that haven’t received the recognition they deserved during their original runs. The festival gives these films and their filmmakers a well-deserved second look.
