Vegan documentary The Game Changers is launching globally on Netflix later this month.

The film, which is directed by Oscar-winner Louie Psihoyos and executive produced by Oscar-winner James Cameron, ‘documents the explosive rise of plant-based eating in professional sports’.

Featuring some of the world’s top athletes plant-based athletes including Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton and top-ranked tennis player Novak Djokovic, the film seeks to ‘expose outdated myths about food that not only affect human performance but the health of the entire global population’.


It screened in theaters around the world last month, for one night, before becoming available on iTunes.

Now the film will be easy to find for viewers around the world, via Netflix’s streaming service.

According to the production team: “UK fans heard it first today – The Game Changers will be available on Netflix ?around the on October 16.”

‘Really proud’

Plant Based News Founder Klaus Mitchell spoke to James Wilks – who produced and wrote the film with Joseph Pace – in an exclusive interview before the film’s premiere.

Wilks addressed about why the film has taken so long to bring to the audience, saying: “I’m really proud of it, it’s taken a lot longer than I thought. If you’d have told me at the beginning how long it would have taken, I wouldn’t have done it.

“It’s been an incredible amount of work and stress for the whole team, including Joseph Pace, the other producer and co-writer. But whether people’s motivation is the environment, animals, or their health and performance, we really think everyone’s going to get something from it.”
