Join Gina Hara, IMMERSe contributor from Concordia's TAG Lab, for a screening and discussion of her documentary film Geek Girls, shown as part of the Grand River Film Festival.
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.
The Games Institute presents the next of a series of "Brown Bag Seminars" on October 26th, 2017. The GI is located in EC-1, and these events are open to all members of the University of Waterloo.
