Today, film creators Lisanne Pajot and James Swirsky announced that their upcoming documentary on game development, Indie Game: The Movie, will premiere during the World Documentary Competition at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival early next year.

The film follows renowned indie game developers Edmund McMillen and Tommy Refenes (Super Meat Boy), Phil Fish (Fez), and Jonathan Blow (Braid), and offers a personal and in-depth look at how these games came to be.

Pajot and Swirsky began producing the film independently 18 months ago, traveling around North America to talk to the industry's most influential indie developers. Since then, the film has built up a strong following from both fans and the press alike.

"We are exceptionally thrilled, humbled and, actually, kind of numbed by this honor. Itís surreal to think that Indie Game: The Movie has been invited to the same festival that introduced the world to the likes of Super Size Me, Born Into Brothels, Man on Wire, The Cove and Waiting for Superman... thatís a heavy club to think about joining," Pajot and Swirsky said in a statement.

The pair added that the film's first post-Sundance showing will take place in Winnipeg, Manitoba on February 3. More details are available at the film's official website. The 2012 Sundance Film Festival itself will take place January 19-29 in Park City, Utah.
