Video games headed to Sundance

The video game world has never really been represented well at Robert Redford’s popular Sundance Film Festival, but that’s set to change this year.

Indie Game: The Movie has been selected to screen at the event. The film will show in the festival’s World Documentary category, which only approved 12 submissions this year.

The film is the work of Lisanne Pajot and James Swirsky, who secured funding by winning a film pitch competition, DVD pre-orders and their own investments. The gamer community has been solidly behind the project, both morally and financially.
