Ebertfest 2018 will screen The Big Lebowski with “The Dude” as a guest

Ebertfest 2018 has been slowly but surely revealing itself (first, The Fugitive, and the amazing guests Ava DuVernay, Julie Dash, and Amma Asante) — they’ve announced another film and guest for this year’s 20th anniversary celebration. The Big Lebowski, a Coen Brothers classic, will be screened — and the guest that will be accompanying the film will be “The Dude” himself, Jeff Dowd, the man who inspired the character.

Read Kate’s article from earlier this week with Melissa Merli as she counts her favorite memories from Ebertfest of year’s past.
