7:00 PM - THE FP | Directed by Jason and Brandon Trost
When JTRO (Jason Trost) witnesses his brother die on the dance-pad during a championship game of "Beat-Beat Revelations", he vows to leave the world of competitive dance video gaming forever and goes into a self-imposed exile, Rambo style. True to formula, after learning that his hometown of Frazier Park (The FP) has fallen helpless to a power-hungry gang of BBR warriors, JTRO finds himself back in the ring dancing not only for himself, but for the very salvation of THE FP. (Screens at the Toronto Underground Cinema) - Tickets: $10
A Coney Island gang must fight their way home through hordes of rival gangs after being framed for assassinating one of New York City's biggest gang leaders. Though it took 25 years to adapt the film into a video game, Walter Hill's seminal action classic has had a profound effect on gaming, and in many ways represents the proto-"beat'em up", crafting a template from which games like RIVER CITY RANSOM and FINAL FIGHT drew influence. (Screens at the Toronto Underground Cinema) - FREE for all!
Single - tickets for THE FP are available at the Toronto Underground Cinema box-office on the day of the screening, The Warriors is FREE for all and everything else needs a Gamercamp badge which you can learn more details about here.
