We have arranged a free screening of the film Good Game at 6:30 sharp. There will be a Q&A with the film maker after the screening.
"For a select group of young men, video gaming isn’t just a hobby - it’s a job. To be a professional gamer, you need a competitive drive, tactical skill, and creativity. With increasingly larger prizes and six figure player salaries, e-sports is on the rise as a career. Good Game follows a new kind of athlete, the Starcraft 2 division of team Evil Geniuses, as they compete around the world to take the top prizes in the biggest tournaments. But between injuries, exhaustion, and egos, those who start at the top might not stay there for long. New superstars are waiting to take the spotlight, and wanting to succeed sometimes just isn’t enough."
"Creative and competitive, members of the Evil Geniuses Starcraft 2 team must prove themselves to make the cut in professional video gaming. Good Game follows the team as they discover that one wrong move could end their dreams."

After the film we will head over across the street for some drinks and chatter. Our friends from the IGDA-DC will be attending this event as well.
