Vancouver is at the forefront of a thriving geek movement. Today’s geeks aren’t worried about fitting in.

They’re standing loud and proud, creating their own communities on the cusp of going mainstream. Welcome To Geeksville is a geek culture documentary currently seeking community votes for a $10,000 Storyhive grant. [youtube id=”zh0N0JPuJco”] It wouldn’t be fun without the sass, and these geeks know how to party.

Geeksville’s amazing cast of geek producers, burlesque troupes, comedy acts, and nerdesque philosophers have let their geekdom go wild. Individuals who have found a way to channel their passions into the art of geeking out, all the while finding out who they really are.
