Sundance Institute announces Roger Ebert Scholarship for Film Criticism
The Sundance Institute is honoring former Chicago Sun-Times film critic Roger Ebert by offering scholarships for the Indiewire Critics Academy at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. The “Ebert Scholars” program also looks to match the critics with more experienced critic mentors.
“You can help keep Roger Ebert’s inspiration, spirit and passion for the Festival going for another generation,” according to an announcement here. “Independent film needs thoughtful, authentic and independent voices in journalism.”
The goal is to offer $25,000 per year for eight scholars. Donations can be made here.
