Indie Game: The Movie

Blizzard is just sooo 2004!

INDIE GAME: THE MOVIE takes a close look at the underdogs of the video game industry, indie game developers, who sacrifice money, health and sanity to realize their lifelong dreams of sharing their creative visions with the world. This Sundance award-winning film captures the tension and drama by focusing on these artists' vulnerability and obsessive quest to express themselves through a 21st-century art form.

LISANNE PAJOT and JAMES SWIRSKY are filmmakers from Winnipeg, Canada. Together they've produced, directed, edited, and shot INDIE GAME: THE MOVIE. Prior to the film, Pajot produced award-winning lifestyle television, shot corporate videos, and worked as a journalist at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Swirsky is a former video game tester. He has been making documentaries, commercials, and award-winning short films for the past 10 years.
