About the Movie
Sparked by a public display of sexual harassment in 2012, GTFO pries open the video-game world to explore a twenty-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: acts of harassment range 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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The rough edges of Sun-Higginson's Kickstarter-funded feature lend it an ingratiating, unpretentious modesty.
Fresh: GTFO is confronting, frightening and, at times, disheartening, yet it's ultimately optimistic and needs to be seen.
Well worth seeing
Great interviews, impressive access to the industry, and a chilling look into the lives of women in gaming.
It gives a slew of perspectives (fans, pro gamers, industry people, critics, academics) on female harassment in online and pro gaming. It shows a lot of different voices that aren’t typically heard from in gaming documentaries. Well worth the view.
