Best Game Video Award + “We are alright” pre-release

When: 18:30-20:30
Where: Multikino Stary Browar (Półwiejska 42), room 7
How to get in: just come and watch

Almost all games contain some kind of movies. These can be trailers, intros or movies that tell fragments of the story – and they tend to be better or worse. The best ones are worth promoting and awarding – this is why for the second time we are preparing a contest for the best films from games, this time from 2017.

“We are alright” is a documentary telling the story of Bartek and Rafal who, after quitting their corporate jobs, decided to create their first video game. The movie follows them throughout the last few months of working on the project. You’ll be able to witness their struggle to publish the game on PlayStation, the emotions of people associated with the game’s launch, and finally, Rafal’s and Bartek’s attempts to break into the consciousness of youtube stars and the industry press.
