GTFO: A Documentary About Women in Gaming

September 17, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

She Geeks Out and CarGurus invite you to the screening of documentary film “GTFO: Get The F&#% Out”, a documentary about women in gaming. Sparked by a public display of sexual harassment in 2012, GTFO pries open the video game world to explore a 20 billion dollar industry that is riddled with discrimination and misogyny.

 

In recent years, the gaming community has grown more diverse than ever. This has led to a massive clash of values and women receive the brunt of the consequences every day, with acts of harassment ranging from name calling to cyber vandalism and death threats.

 

Through interviews with video game developers, journalists, and academics, GTFO paints a complex picture of the video game industry, while revealing the systemic and human motivations behind acts of harassment. GTFO is the beginning of a larger conversation that will shape the future of the video game world.
