Filmmaker Sun-Higginson ’10 Tackles Sexism in the Gaming Industry

From Shannon Sun-Higginson ’10, a message to all the sexist gamers out there: GTFO.

Sun-Higginson, a filmmaker living in NYC, is currently producing a documentary by that very name.  Featuring interviews with gamers, bloggers, scholars, developers, and others involved in the field, “GTFO” aims to expose the harassment of women involved in the gaming industry. To raise money and support for the film’s production, Sun-Higginson has launched a Kickstarter page that will be up through May 10.

Sexual harassment is a rampant problem in the gaming world – one that’s been gaining attention in the news lately.  There has been some pretty impressive backlash online against this sexism, but Sun-Higginson hopes her film will call even more attention to the problem and ultimately spark some change.
