Ebert Film Festival Shows Favorites

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP)

Roger Ebert sees a lot of movies, some of which he believes deserve wider attention.

So the Chicago Sun-Times film critic will be the host for a third year of "Roger Ebert's Overlooked Film Festival," which will run from April 25-29 at two historic Champaign theaters, the Virginia and the Art, and at the University of Illinois, Ebert's alma mater.

Woody Allen's "Everyone Says I Love You" is among the 14 films being screened. The others are "The Girl on the Bridge," "Jesus' Son," "The King of Masks," "Maryam," "Nosferatu," "On the Ropes," "Panic," "A Simple Plan," "Songs From the Second Floor," "Such a Long Journey," "3 Women," "2001: A Space Odyssey" and "Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures."

Ebert also is the co-host of "Ebert and Roeper and the Movies," a nationally syndicated television program.
