40K Neotube - Hammers of War

Some film students a SAIT Polytechnic put together a 17 minute documentary about Warhammer 40K.  Specifically it looked at a tournament in Canada, that pitted the forces of the Emperor against the forces of Horus.  It featured footage of the games, and interviews with participants and organizers.

The film is notable for a couple reasons.  First it is completely non-judgmental.  It doesn't put the gamers in a negative light, nor does it react when someone might say something potentially embarrassing.  In fact it shows gamers as well spoken people who play the game as much for the hobby and competitiveness as for the social aspect of the game.

Normally I would embed this movie in this post, but embedding has been disabled so go enjoy the movie.  I found it to be a good piece that really puts gamers and the game we love in a pretty good light.
