Many thanks to Roger Ebert’s favorite reporter covering Ebertfest, Melissa Merli, for a wonderful interview.

This is her third year at Ebertfest, where she handled the onstage Q-and-A after “Short Term 12″ was shown Thursday afternoon. That movie made her Top 10 list last year. As for Ebertfest, she “absolutely” loves it.

“What I love most about it is there is no intense air of competition. Everybody watches the same movies together and talks about them afterward,” she said Friday between screenings.
