Geek Girls doco hits Australia: speak with 5x world champion gamer about gender equality in gaming professions
Geek Girls is the first feature-length documentary exploring the hidden half of fan culture: nerdy women. Although geeky communities have recently risen to prominence as major cultural contributors, very little attention has been directed towards the women who live and work with nerd culture on a daily basis. Filmmaker Gina Hara addresses this oversight by delving into a world of professional gamers, cute dresses, fake names, and death threats; she follows her subjects through the exhilaration of newfound community and the ennui of ostracization while also exploring her own struggles with her geek identity.
IN CINEMAS – MARCH 8
Geek Girls will be released in to Australian cinemas to commemorate International Women’s Day on March 8. The film is being released via cinema on demand platform, Demand.film. People must pre-purchase their tickets via demand.film.
