Opening Night Introduced by Winnipeg-based publisher Hope Nicholson, historian, editor, writer and owner of Bedside Press. She is the curator and editor of The Secret Loves of Geeks series.

Geek Girls Winnipeg will be hosting a reception in the lobby on opening night welcome to all from 6 pm to 10 pm. Geek Girls Winnipeg is a monthly friendly socializing collection of over 600 non-binary & women geeks who gather in different locations each month to enjoy comics, videogames, and all sorts of fandom!

Geek Girls is the first feature-length documentary exploring the hidden half of fan culture: nerdy women. Filmmaker Gina Hara tells a great story, delving into a world of professional gamers, cute dresses, fake names, and death threats; she follows her subjects through the exhilaration of newfound community. Hara covers a lot of ground, interviewing prominent figures in comics, films, gaming players and game development, cosplay, and even aerospace engineering. Interviews include Jamie Broadnax of the Black Girl Nerds website and podcast and Mariko McDonald of Gamerwife. She also travels to Japan where it takes weeks to find women willing to open up. The “otaku” are afraid to speak up for fear of being ostracized by Japanese culture.
