Ebertfest!

posted by Nell Minow

I am honored that Roger Ebert has invited me to his Ebertfest (formerly known as the Overlooked Film Festival). I will be presenting the gorgeous adventure film “The Fall” appearing with its talented young star, Catinca Untaru . If you’re in the Champaign-Urbana area on April 25, come by and see me!

Three Views on the Challenges Women Face in the Film Industry
