Here's another fitting tribute to Roger Ebert, this one from all the way across the Atlantic, where friends, colleagues, and fans gathered outside the American Pavilion at the Cannes Film Festival for a "500 Thumbs Up" Salute to the late film critic. Look carefully and you'll see Chaz Ebert, Columbia University's Annette Insdorf, the Los Angeles Times' Kenneth Turan, the Chicago Tribune's Michael Phillips, and Indiewire's own Eric Kohn, among many others. (Phillips is the toughest and most Waldo-esque to spot, but he's in there).

Insdorf, Turan, Phillips, and Kohn also participated in an American Pavilion panel dedicated to Ebert and his memory. RogerEbert.com's Ben Kenigsberg has a full report; I particularly like Ebert's advice to Kohn on how to deal with cruel Internet commenters:

"Fuck it. Keep on keepin' on."

And so we shall. That's a really great picture. Makes me even sadder I'm not in Cannes.
