Yes, you can by launching Geany with the command-line option
--new-instance (or -i, its short name):
$ geany -i [FILE...]

Note that the first launched instance is still the "main" one, so you
need to use File->Open from that second instance to open an additional
file in it. Opening a file with your file browser or with the
command-line will still open in the first Geany's window.
