Shannon Sun-Higginson / USA / 2015 / 76 mins / English / Documentary
“GTFO is brutally effective — intelligent, thought-provoking, and thorough.” – Flavorwire.
Sparked by a public display of sexual harassment in 2012, Director Shannon Sun-Higginson pries open the gaming world to explore a 20 billion dollar industry that is riddled with misogyny. In recent years, the diversification of the gaming community has led to a surge in sexism, with violent threats and cyber bullying becoming an everyday occurrence for female gamers. Through interviews with video game developers, journalists and academics, GTFO paints a complex picture of the video game industry, opening up a broader dialogue that will shape the future of the online world.
