The 3rd Annual GDC Film Festival will take place at the Yerba Buena Center For The Arts’ Screening Room – directly adjacent to the Moscone Center – from Monday, March 16th to Wednesday, March 18th during Game Developers Conference 2020.
Screenings will be open to all GDC 2020 pass holders, on a first-come, first-served basis. Across the three days, there will be a wide range of documentaries and other filmed material based around the video game medium, some of which will be debuting for the first time.
The Festival will include onstage Q&As with film-makers, and game producer/designer and journalist Mathew Kumar (Indivisible, Sound Shapes) will be MC-ing the festival and co-programming the featured films. We’re looking for GDC Film Festival submissions from video game documentarians (in particular) and other filmmakers creating works that feature video games in a major way.
Please submit using the below form before December 6th, 2019. The 8 selected films will be announced by January 31, 2020. Selected films will be displayed at the Festival and the filmmakers will receive 2 GDC Conference + Summits Passes and 2 Expo+ Passes to the event in San Francisco next March. You are not required to be present at GDC for your film to be shown.
Any other questions about the Festival and entering can be directed to Festival co-director Mathew Kumar via GDCFilmFestival@gmail.com.
