Indie Game: The Movie is leaving the screens of Sundance for the wider world's consumption, and one of its first stops will be at SXSW
as an official festival selection. Indie Game: The Movie has been chosen on its value as a film, not being shown as a "Documentary Feature Competition" or a "Documentary Spotlight," but as a "Festival Favorite."
Indie Game was previously part of SXSW's ScreenBurn Arcade series, and directors / everything else
James Swirsky and Lisanne Pajot are scheduled to host a panel with Fez
's Phil Fish.
SXSW runs from March 9-18 in Austin, Texas, with festival film badges starting at $550 (yes, those are the cheapest) before February 10. This may not be the "public" screening most of us are hoping for, but Indie Game: The Movie
will post showings as they come up, such as the Santa Cruz
screening it lists now.
