With the twenty-first century comes a new breed of struggling independent artist: the indie game designer. Refusing to toil for major developers, these innovators independently conceive, design, and program their distinctly personal games in the hope that they, too, may find success.
First-time filmmaking duo Lisanne Pajot and James Swirsky capture the emotional journey of these meticulously obsessive artists who devote their lives to their interactive art. Four developers, three games, and one ultimate goal— to express oneself through a video game
We are proud to be able to present critically acclaimed and award winning independent documentary Indie Game: The Movie to a Dutch audience.
The four of us come from a background in the games industry. When we first heard of the documentary two years ago we all thought (separate of each other) that we wanted to screen this in a proper film theatre.
In the past couple of weeks we joined forces to bring this film to a bigger audience. We believe the film gives insight into the passion, creativity and perseverance of the independent game developer. With this screening we hope it inspires people of all ages and backgrounds.
