Panel Discussions

Ebertfest hosts a number of academic panel discussions, bringing together filmmakers, critics, scholars, and students to discuss and educate the festival community on relevant trends and current industry cultural topics.  These panels are yet another way for us to dialogue and promote film as an art form.

Panels will be held at the Hyatt Place Hotel (217 N. Neil Street, Champaign, Illinois) and will be part of our livestream.  All panels are free and open to the public.
