“Ebertfest 21” set for April 10-13, 2019 tickets on sale Nov. 1

 

The festival passes cover all 12 or more screenings during the festival, held in the ornate Virginia Theatre, a restored downtown Champaign movie palace. Related talks and panel discussions may be held at the Hyatt Place hotel in downtown Champaign and at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. 

 

In addition to celebrated films, the festival presents cinematic works overlooked by audiences, critics or distributors. It was founded by Ebert, an Urbana native, U. of I. journalism graduate and Pulitzer Prize-winning film critic for the Chicago Sun-Times who died in 2013. Chaz Ebert, Roger’s widow, is a co-founder and executive producer of the festival, as well as its host; Nate Kohn is the festival director.

 

The lineup of films, guests and other events will be announced several weeks before the festival, which is sponsored by the U. of I. College of Media.

 

The passes are $150, plus processing. Four passes purchased together are $510 instead of $600, or 15 percent off. Also available are a small number of U. of I. student passes priced at $100 each. One thousand passes will be available. They can be purchased through the festival website, the theater website or the theater box office, 203 W. Park Ave., Champaign, 217-356-9063.

 

“The festival   originally ended on Saturday night to give the audience time to travel back home or just to get ready for the week ahead, but we gradually added Sunday. We are returning to that original schedule, but you won’t notice it because we will still have the same amount of films,” said Chaz Ebert, a co-founder of the festival. “And I promise you, we will have the same joy and discovery packed within those days. Then you can go home and rest. After all, we will be entering  Year 21 and we want to make it special. Roger would be so proud.” 

Updates will be posted on the festival website. Tickets for individual movies will be available April 1.
