Today at Ebertfest

posted by Nell Minow

I will be on stage following I Capture the Castle today. Unfortunately, the travel delays in Europe kept Bill Nighy from attending the festival as planned, but we will have a good audience discussion. Then, we will see Vincent: a Life in Color, a documentary about a Chicago man who wears suits the color of jellybeans and entertains the crowds on the Chicago River boats by twirling. He is here at the festival and came up to me last night to make a joke about my last name (better than most!).

All that and more coming up. Stay tuned.

    Nell, you did a terrific job moderating the “I capture the castle” panel discussion. And in contributing on other panels. It was clear that you love movies. Thank you for taking time to take a picture with me there.

    Randy, I am so grateful to you for all you and the other volunteers did to make the festival run so smoothly. It was a great joy to be a part of it and I am so glad we got a chance to talk. Hope to see you there again next year!
