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.

Any other questions about the Festival and entering can be directed to Festival co-director Mathew Kumar via [email protected].
