Ebertfest is a non-profit event of the College of Media at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The mission is to praise films, genres and formats that have been overlooked. Chosen by Mr. Ebert, the entries include films without distributors, independent and studio films that did not win wide audiences, formats such as 70mm and overlooked genres such as the documentary. The festival is small enough so that a sense of community can develop among the audience, the filmmakers, the guests, students and scholars.
