My Ebertfest glow has pretty much dissipated, even though I found this year’s festival the most inspiring yet.
The documentary "A Small Act" made me want to commit small acts of kindness, and the doc "Louder Than a Bomb" inspired me to do something big for others.
When filmmakers brothers Turner and Bill Ross set out to make a documentary about their hometown, they wanted to depict the emotions and nuances of growing up in the Midwest.
So we’re midway through the 13th annual Ebertfest.
How’s it shaping up?
When first reading Robbie Pickering’s script for "Natural Selection," actress Rachael Harris immediately connected with the protagonist Linda.
But Harris figured there was no way she would land the role, that it would likely go to one of the "much greater actresses" out there.
Yesterday one of my Facebook friends posted this question: "Anyone scoped out Ebertfest? What do you think is ‘not to be missed’?
Ebertfest 2011 will be covered by a slew of bloggers, many of them from distant lands.
Roger Ebert might be in a particularly good mood during his 13th annual Ebertfest, starting Wednesday at the Virginia Theatre in Champaign.
I admit I’m a neophyte when it comes to lieder, or German art songs.
But I just had to attend one of the two recitals of Franz Schubert lieder presented on Sunday by John Wustman and Nathan Gunn at the beautiful and grand Smith Recital Hall on the UI campus.
Last Friday evening was a whirlwind for me, thanks to the Boneyard Arts Festival.
The Boneyard Arts Festival has so many cool events that I wish I had a few Doppelgangers to take them all in.
The festival opened Thursday evening and runs through this Sunday, featuring art displays and events at more than 100 venues.
