INDIE GAME: The Movie

Sponsored by the Canadian Consulate

With the 21st-century comes a new breed of artist: the indie game designer. Refusing to toil for major developers, these innovators independently conceive, design, and program their distinctly personal games with the hope of connection and success.  Indie Game: The Movie (2012, dirs. Lisanne Pajot & James Swirsky, Canada, 96 mins.) portrays four developers, three games, and one ultimate goal: to make the video game a supreme form of expression.

The characters: after years of work, designer Edmund McMillen and programmer Tommy Refenes work toward the release of their first major game for Xbox, Super Meat Boy. At a big video game expo, developer Phil Fish unveils his highly anticipated game, FEZ. And designer Jonathan Blow considers a new game after creating one of the highest-rated games of all time, BraidIndie Game: The Movie won Best Editing Award at 2012 Sundance Film Festival.

Consul General Roy Norton is scheduled to attend this exclusive screening! Before the film, from 4 to 6 pm, check out big screen gaming in The Toby (new games) and DeBoest Hall (old-school games).  Then, meet up with members of Horrible Night gamers group and IGDA Indianapolis developers group from 6 to 7 pm.
