RRC Alum’s Documentary Makes PBS Top 10

November 27, 2012

Congratulations to Red River College grad Lisanne Pajot (Creative Communications, 2003), whose debut film Indie Game: The Movie tied for 5th place on PBS’ list of the Top 10 documentaries of 2012.

Directed and produced by Pajot and partner James Swirksy (shown at left), the film chronicles the world of independent video game developers, and has drawn rave reviews from critics across North America since it bowed at the Sundance Film Festival last January.

In addition to its recent ranking on the PBS/POV list, the doc also picked up the World Cinema Documentary Best Editing Prize at Sundance. It’s since been toured throughout Canada and the U.S., and was optioned by HBO and producer Scott Rudin (The Social Network, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo).
