Typically, the entertainment highlight of the annual Game Developers Conference in San Francisco is the Game Developer’s Choice Awards – one of the video game industry’s more prestigious award ceremonies.
Those will still be handed out this year, but attendees are likely to be more excited about the announcement that Indie Game – The Movie will be screened at the show on March 5 at 6pm.
In addition to showing the winner of the Best Editing award at the Sundance Film Festival, the show will host a panel with the film’s featured subjects and creators following the film.
The film follows independent game developers Edmund McMillen and Tommy Refenes (maker of “Super Meat Boy”), Phil Fish (“Fez”) and Jonathan Blow (“Braid”), showcasing the creation and release of their titles.
The film has been playing to sold out audiences in select screenings since its premier earlier this month.
