The mission of Roger Ebert's Overlooked Film Festival is to praise overlooked films, genres, and formats that have been overlooked. Chosen by Roger Ebert, the entries include films without distributors, independent and studio films that did not win wide audiences, formats such as 70mm and silent films, and overlooked genres like the documentary. We work to keep the festival small enough so that a  sense of community can develop among the audience, the film-makers, the guests, University of Illinois students and scholars. The festival is a non-profit event of the University of Illinois College of Communications.
