GTFO: Misogyny in the Videogaming World
GTFO pries open the video game world to explore a 20 billion dollar industry that is riddled with discrimination and misogyny. Although half of all gamers are women, females are disproportionately subject to harassment and abuse from other gamers, and are massively under-represented in the video game design world. Through interviews with video game developers, journalists, and academics, GTFO examines the female experience in gaming and begins a larger conversation that will shape the future of the video game world.

QUOTES AND REVIEWS
"Shannon Sun-Higginson's documentary is an entertaining, accessible survey of misogyny in the videogaming world". Dennis Harvey, Variety
"The tone of "GTFO" is educational. It’s broken up as chapters. Topics of discussion include the history of game marketing, the portrayal of female characters and the perception of female gamers." Todd Martens, Los Angeles Times
"For a documentary so intent on humanizing women who have been dehumanized by their own industry, these in-home interviews and cameos from the subjects’ children and male allies are key." Joanna Robinson, Vanity Fair
"GTFO is brutally effective - intelligent, thought-provoking, and thorough."
Jason Bailey, Flavorwire
