Last Minute Announcements

Program misprint:
Practice Makes Perfect: The Director of Practice Makes Perfect is labelled as David Spiegel in the program.  That is incorrect. The director's name is Devon Avery, and is attending our festival. Look for him in the crowd and at his film's showing: Friday, 6:00 p.m. at the Breckenridge Backstage Theatre.  Sorry about that Devon!

“Life Itself” (Breckenridge screening)

3 p.m. Sunday at The Riverwalk Center (Doors at 2:30 p.m.), 150 W. Adams Ave.

Acclaimed director Steve James (Hoop Dreams) and executive producers Martin Scorsese (The Departed) and Steven Zaillian (Moneyball) present "Life Itself," a documentary film that recounts the inspiring and entertaining life of world-renowned film critic and social commentator Roger Ebert – a story that is by turns personal, funny, painful, and transcendent. Critically acclaimed itself, the film is based on Roger Ebert's bestselling memoir of the same name, and explores the legacy of Ebert's life, from his Pulitzer Prize-winning film criticism at the Chicago Sun-Times to becoming one of the most influential cultural voices in America.
