The Bragg brothers said, “The history of pinball is fascinating and uniquely American. Roger’s impact on the game is well-known to pinball fans but worthy of wider attention. We’re excited to work with Roger to share his remarkable journey.

There was a brief teaser of the movie posted on YouTube but it has subsequently been taken down. However, there is now a website about it, including details of the cast and crew.

You can see that at pinballfilm.com.

The 30th-anniversary film festival takes place October 7th-16th, 2022. General admission tickets will be on sale beginning September 27th.
