Roger Ebert is preparing to appear at his annual film festival, and this year it has a new name.The Overlooked Film Festival is now being called Roger Ebert's Film Festival, or Ebertfest. Roger appeared last year as he continued to recover from some serious cancer surgery. He's currently finalizing a line-up of films that represent a cross section of genres and styles, and several low-budget works.

Roger says others will introduce the movies because surgical and health issues have made it tricky for him, but he will be there and the festival will go on.
