GeekGirlCon is back at the Washington State Convention Center in downtown Seattle. There is so much awesome stuff going on and all of it is geared towards geeks, girls, and girls who are geeks. Last year was my first time covering this convention and was very impressed with what I saw and this year looks to be bigger and better than ever before.
Hey, everyone! This will be my first trip to the Tacoma Film Festival and, while my time there will be brief, I am hoping to maximize the experience as much as possible. Meanwhile, I've got a few highlights featured below of the movies you will want most likely to check out. A couple that I've seen and a couple I'm looking forward to checking out real soon!
