The Game Changers is a 2018 documentary film about the benefits of plant-based eating for athletes.[1][2][3] It covers multiple success stories of plant-based athletes, references scientific studies, and touches on other arguments for plant-based diets that extend to non-athletes.


The documentary follows former UFC fighter James Wilks who, while recovering from an injury, travels the world and talks with elite athletes that follow plant-based diets.[4] Athletes interviewed include Arnold Schwarzenegger, Patrik Baboumian, and Dotsie Bausch.[3]


The Game Changers debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2018, with a second edit released worldwide for a one-day screening in September 2019.[2] The film has over a dozen executive producers, including James Cameron, Pamela Anderson, Rip Esselstyn, Jackie Chan and Brendan Brazier.[3]
