    IGTM Opening in NYC, LA, SF and More!

    This Friday Indie Game: The Movie is opening in New York, Los Angeles, Phoenix and San Francisco!

    As we pack our bags to go to New York, it's starting to sink that ... this is kinda a big deal. 

    For any documentary film, a theatrical release is a long shot.  Let alone a multi-city release featuring an engagement at prestigious theaters like the  IFC Center or Toronto’s TIFF Bell Lightbox (May 25th).

    Coming off of a consistently sold out U.S. tour, and a run at Seattle’s SIFF Center that saw the film held over (extended) not once, but twice!   We are exceptionally excited to take the film out a little wider.  Here is the specific information:

    New York, IFC Center, May 18th-25th
    Directors in attendance 18th-19th

    Los Angeles, Laemmle’s NoHo 7 theater, May 18th-25th

    Help get the film into more theaters...

    A good performance during these engagements can help convince other theater programmers to take the film on board.  Being a self-distributed film, the absolute best way to sell ourselves to theater owners is by proving people will come.  The tour wen a long way towards accomplishing that.  But a strong NYC/LA/SF performance will help even more.

    But How?
    It’s pretty simple really.   

    • If you are in these cities, please come check out the film.
    • If you’ve already seen it, feel free to tell a friend.
    • If you are not in these cities, but know people who are.  Please tell them about it.

    And Yes, a Digital/DVD release is coming soon...

    We LOVE the idea of more and more people experiencing this film in a theater, surrounded by others.  It truly does add something and makes for a better experience.  However, we know that we can’t get everywhere, and that there are a lot of people itching to see the film.  It’s coming and will be out digitally very soon after the theatrical run.  This is all leading to the digital, DVD release.  It’ll be here before you know it.  Expect an announcement on this soon.

    In the meantime though, if you can catch the film in theaters, please do.  If you can help other theaters coming on board by spreading the word, we would absolutely love that.

    See you soon!

    -James & Lisanne
