The coronavirus is having a devastating impact on film festivals. San Francisco and RiverRun International Film Festivals have canceled.
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.
