Middle East Film & Comic Con 6th-8th April @ Dubai World Trade Center
The Middle East Film and Comic Con (MEFCC), the first and largest popular culture festival in the region is returning for its sixth edition on the 6th to 8th April 2017, promising an even bigger spectacle than its highly successful 2016 event at the Dubai World Trade Centre that attracted over 60,000 fans.
Targeting more than 70,000 visitors from across the Middle East and beyond in 2017, MEFCC is now one of the most talked about events in the region and is a showcase of both regional and international entertainment and popular culture including some of the world’s biggest brands in Film, TV, Sci-Fi, Animation, Manga, Comics, Collectibles and more.
Maintaining its objectives of building a platform for regional talent, encouraging entrepreneurship and connecting fans with creators and companies while bridging the gap between cultures and promoting the region to the wider world, the event and its supporting projects has become a landmark in the regional events calendar.
THE MASCOT: On a steamy morning amidst the heavy burden of the desert’s heat came the strong reality check that ‘Bun’ didn’t plan for. It felt like the pricking rays of the sun were about to destroy his entire system and thus something was about to happen. The mix of the heat intolerance fused with his desire to progress kicked in. He could feel his yellow complexion tingle within and that the time was at hand. In the middle of the desert, and out of nowhere the clouds narrowed down to a halt, surrounding him and a beam shot out of every single direction. From that second on, Bun Bot 5.0 was born!
Our Bun Bot 5.0 had the ability to fly out of the desert and he flew like a shooting star landing with a super hero pose for the ages in the Za’abeel area and monitored the crowd closely. He comes in peace and has assimilated all aspects of this world’s pop culture and wants to you to join him from 6th to 8th April at Dubai World Trade Centre for the most amazing time of your life!
And so it begins… bigger, better than ever before!
Yes, it’s that time of year again when super heroes and super fans come face to face with some of the coolest celebs and creative talent from across the region and the world, and as always MEFCC will be kicking up a storm in the wonderful world of comics, movies, anime, manga and all things pop culture!
A massive thank you to all those who attended last year! We are absolutely thrilled to welcome you again and this time to our new home at the Dubai World Trade Centre to take in the sights, sounds and of course, the costumes that express your inner geek in an electric atmosphere! From non-stop panels and workshops to amazing main stage activities there’s a whole lot of heroic goodness for everyone to enjoy.
The Con is by the fans for the fans and you’re what makes it special so have a great weekend, be good to each.
