The sixth annual Embarras Valley Film Festival, “Lincoln, the Civil War and Memory,” will honor Abraham Lincoln through presentations and filmic representations of Lincoln’s life and the Civil War.
A collaborative effort between the community and Eastern Illinois University, the film festival will be held Thursday through Saturday on campus and downtown. All events are free and open to the public.
The festival celebrates the contributions to the film arts by individuals with connections to East-Central Illinois and EIU. This year, the festival joins a host of other institutions in Illinois celebrating Lincoln’s 200th birthday.
