Roger Ebert’s Film Festival Donors

Film Circle, Diamond, Platinum, Gold, Silver, Patrons, Friends, and Associates

(July 1, 2020–June 30, 2021)

Founded by the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and his wife Chaz Ebert in 1999, Roger Ebert’s Film Festival (“Ebertfest”) is grounded in Roger’s belief that film is an “empathy machine” that allows the audience to walk in someone else’s shoes. With empathy at the core of programming, the festival’s mission is to promote the standing of, and access to, film arts in underserved areas of Illinois and to educate audiences to better understand serious motion pictures made by filmmakers from around the world, especially films that celebrate the human condition, promote tolerance, and take audiences into worlds they have never seen before. With Chaz Ebert still hosting and selecting films for the event each April, and with College of Media students working in many roles across the festival, Ebertfest continues to affirm that movies are an accessible means to broaden cultural experience and give a voice to underrepresented communities while, at the same time, giving valuable professional experience to University of Illinois students. The festival brings famous filmmakers and audiences together in discourse that promotes more compassionate and tolerant citizenship annually.
