Ebertfest began tonight and I’ll be there tomorrow.  You’ll hear my thoughts but you can also be there yourself — virtually.  And follow us on @ebertfest

Note my appearances with “Higher Ground” and “A Separation.”

 

The intros will be brief; the Q&As can run 30-45 minutes. Start times for Q&As are approximate. Onstage personalities are subject to change.

For Ebert’s intro and comments on every film in the festival, see his blog entry here.
