The UIP has been partnering with Champaign’s annual Roger Ebert Film Festival for several years now, contributing books from the Contemporary Film Directors Series for the Fest to give to their VIP guests.

At the 16th Annual Festival April 23-27 one of the latest books in the series, serendipitously, will be paired with one of the highlighted films.

Director Spike Lee will be a special guest on Friday, April 25 at 8:30pm as the festival screens Lee’s 1989 film Do the Right Thing.

Guests of the festival will be paging through Tood McGowan’s Spike Lee and with Jaimey Fisher’s Christian Petzold.
