This hilarious mockumentary follows an ambitious event promoter as he tries to launch a new national championship based around video gaming. Inviting the five top gamers from around the country, the road to seat league is paved with bizarre characters and amusing detours. Produced entirely on the Gold Coast with a local cast and crew, Josh Hale’s debut feature film is inspired by the greats in the genre from Spinal Tap, to Best In Show and even The Office, but infused with an Aussie edge that is entirely unique. Digital Athletes is a genuinely uproarious shot of fresh energy in the local comedy scene.
Digital Athletes: The Road to Seat League will screen at the Gold Coast Film Festival on Thursday 27 April. Tickets and details here.
