CHAMPAIGN -- Roger Ebert's wife, Chaz, will host this year's Ebertfest. The Urbana-native died Thursday after his latest battle with cancer.

Just a few weeks before the 15th Annual Film Festival, organizers are also asking people to donate to the Ebert Center. Roger and Chaz donated $1 million for a film studies program at UI.
