New arrivals for the week of April 1, 2008

Greetings Film Lovers!

The Second Annual Latin American Film festival is this week (April 4 - 10) at the Boardman's Theatre. The festival is organized by the University of Ilinois’ Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies with help from Boardman’s Art Theater. All screenings take place at the theater (126 W. Church St, Champaign). Tickets are priced at the theater’s standard rates and will be available at the box office in advance of each showing. Films include: “The Aura”, “Alice’s House”, “Cocalero”, “Madeinusa” and “The Violin”. More information and show times are available on the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies web site. And, of course, while it's always more fun to see the films on the big screen with an audience, if you miss one stop by the store, we've got all five on DVD.

Another film festival made the news this week -- Roger Ebert announced the films for the 10th Annual Roger Ebert's Film Festival. They include: The Band's Visit, Canvas, The Cell, Delirious, Hamlet, Housekeeping, Hulk, Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters, The Real Dirt on Farmer John, Romance & Cigarettes, Shotgun Stories, Underworld and Yes. We'll get our annual Ebertfest section put together this week with all the films from previous years festivals plus as many from this year's as we can get our hands on. More information on Ebertfest can be found on the official web site (www.ebertfest.com).

Speaking of Ebertfest, this month's issue of The Believer (published by the always awesome McSweeney's) is the "2008 Film Issue". Included in it is an article entitled "Werner Herzog in conversation with Errol Morris" (two of Ebert's regulars). If you don't feel like buying the magazine you can always read it on-line (www.believermag.com).

Well, I've used up more than my alloted 250 words. Have a great day...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
