Ebertfest 2014 Lineup Honors the Late Legendary Film Critic, Will Open with 'Life Itself'

Sadly, this is the first year the late Roger Ebert won't be attending his very own Ebertfest. And so the folks at his namesake Illinois festival have put together a great lineup for this year's 16th annual edition, which will go down in Champaign-Urbana April 23-27. Chaz Ebert will return as emcee.
