Join us for a sneak preview of the new movie about indie game developers: Game Loading: Rise of the Indies.
We have asked film and game critic at Weekendavisen, Søren Staal Balslev, to introduce the film. Afterwards there will be beer sponsored by Playdead and time to mingle.
Note: We have a max capacity of 140 persons at this SpilBar, and for safety reasons we have to be strict about not letting more people into the theatre.
Therefore, the 140 first to arrive will get the tickets. We start handing out tickets at 16.00.
About the film
GameLoading: Rise of the Indies is a feature-length documentary exploring the vibrant global community of indie game creators. These unique voices, of all backgrounds and nationalities, are disrupting the traditional models of game development, making personal, innovative experiences.
In the spirit of movements like the French New Wave, the Punk scene and the Grunge scene, hundreds of indie auteurs are emerging and finding success with their own unique voices and artistic goals. GameLoading: Rise of the Indies aims to capture this exciting moment in time.
The documentary is created by Lester Francois and Anna Brady from Australian StudioBento and financed by two Kickstarter campaigns. Read more at http://www.gameloading.tv/
