Today, organizers of the 2012 Game Developers Conference announced that the award-winning Indie Game: The Movie will receive its own special screening at this year’s San Francisco show.
In fact, not only will attendees get to check out the film — which took home a Best Editing award at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival — they will also get the chance to sit in on a special panel with the film’s featured subjects and creators following the screening.
When the event begins, attendees will be able to watch the full film, which details the chronicles of indie developers and IGF nominees/winners Edmund McMillen and Tommy Refenes (Super Meat Boy), Phil Fish (Fez), and Jonathan Blow (Braid), exploring their dramatic journeys as they created and released their games to the world.
The subsequent panel, moderated by former IGF host, Revision 3’s Anthony Carboni, will feature all four of the film’s featured developers, as well as directors Lisanne Pajot and James Swirsky, all of whom will offer new insight and personal stories from throughout the film’s creation.
The event will take place Monday, March 5th at 6PM PT, and is free to all GDC pass holders on a first come, first served basis.
To register for a pass, please check out the show’s official website — early registration ends Thursday, February 2, and attendees can order soon to save up to 35 percent on full price passes.
