Geek Girls reveals the hidden half of nerd culture; a world of cute dresses, professional gamers, fake names and death threats. In the first feature-length documentary about ‘geeky’ women, filmmaker Gina Hara goes on a journey to discover the trials and tribulations of high achieving women in the international world of comics, games, anime and ‘cosplaying’, revealing previously untold stories and what it means to be a true Geek.
Kick off your evening with a drink and a viewing of THEMUSEUM’s feature exhibition, Model Citizens, before Grand River Film Festival’s screening of the 2017 film, Geek Girls (7pm). The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Gina Hara and producer Michael Massicotte.
