Roger Ebert’s Film Festival

The schedule for Roger Ebert’s Film Festival has just been announced. The festival will take place in Champaign, Ill. April 27-May 1.

This year’s star-studded fare includes a screening of Metropolis with a live orchestra, Me & Orson Welles (with director Richard Linklater), I Am Love (with special guest Tilda Swinton) and Leaves of Grass (with director Tim Blake Nelson).

As per usual, there is no rhyme or reason to the movies selected, just solid films that Ebert felt were overlooked or under-appreciated in some ways.

Tickets go on sale April 4. A festival pass will set you back $135.
