We are deeply saddened by the news that legendary film critic, journalist, and screenwriter Roger Ebert, passed away today. Our thoughts are with his family and friends. His work influenced many, and raised the bar high for film criticism.
"A great movie can involve not plot but life, and the daily living of it," he wrote in 2005. "Although movies can amuse and excite us, their greatest consolation comes when they understand us." -Ebert at the Movies by Jason Sanders
We are thankful to have honored him at the 53rd San Francisco International Film Festival with the Novikoff Award.
