Join UXPA Boston for a FREE public showing of this Sundance award-winning feature documentary about the trials & tribulations of creativity. Each attendee will receive admission, one small soda and one small popcorn for free!
Description: “Four developers, three games, and one ultimate goal— to express oneself through a video game. Indie Game: The Movie is about the creative process and putting yourself out there through your work. It’s a journey many filmmakers, creators, artists, entrepreneurs – many people, can relate to in the digital era.”
This movie is free and open to the public. The theatre seats 550+ so we’re not kidding: invite friends, family, acquaintances, coworkers, guilds, Pokémon hunters, tabletop gamers, anyone who enjoys a fun and thoughtful look at the creative process.
