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!

Four Disney Artists Paint a Tree
Pure pleasure: Four great Disney artists, Marc Davis, Eyvind Earle, Josh Meador, and Walt Peregoy, paint a tree. There's a reason they call them actors with pencils. Or, just call them geniuses. [iframe width="420" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/9JK9uQNBDxQ?rel=0" frameborder="0"]
