Winnipeg-based BlinkWorks Productions has just announced that their crowd-funded documentary Indie Game: The Movie about independent video game makers will be premiering at the Sundance Film Festival. I didn’t pay much attention when I heard they were making this movie, since my own opinion on video games largely skews into the “waste of time” category. But, the documentary looks like it focuses on more universal themes of creativity, struggle, and drive in the lives of the creators of these video games. What drives them to do what they do? I’m looking forward to seeing it.
Winnipeggers can watch the outside-of-Sundance premiere on Feb 3, 2012.
Congratulations to Lisanne and James on the Sundance selection!
