The Middle East Film & Comic Con (MEFCC) brings cult entertainment & popular culture fun into the region. This event brings together celebrities, artists, music, art and exhibitors from around the world.
Unfortunately, Karl Urban, a celebrity guest (who is best known for playing Éomer in the second and third installments of Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and Dr. Leonard “Bones” McCoy in Star Trek) has had to withdraw from MEFCC 2015. However, other notable film actors will be present. Attending will be Matt Hawkins, an international artist that will speak about how he had entered into the comic book industry as a writer, using science and technology in stories. Tommy Tallarico who has been writing music for video games for more than two decades will be there. He is the man behind the music in numerous titles. These are only a few of the celebrity guests that are scheduled to appear at MEFCC this year.
There is something for everyone at MEFCC 2015! The event promises to have even crazier and amazing content than ever before! There are to be several exhibitors displaying various works from vintage comics, film, games and collectible art pieces, and more across the show floor. This is the only place of its kind in the region to see and also buy such items, get autographs and photographs with favorite celebrity stars too.
According to the website’s Guide to MEFCC, “The Celebs will charge a small fee for their autograph or photo and you’ll be able to purchase this from the central tickets booth on the ground floor.” Those going to MEFCC are asked to bring cash, as many exhibitors will not have credit card or debit card facilities to make a sale.
With only a week to go, the 3-day event, from Thursday, 9th – Saturday, 11th, which takes place at Dubai World Trade Centre on Sheikh Zayed Road, be sure to buy tickets ahead of time to guarantee attendance. Many tickets are going to go fast, especially those elusive VIP tickets! Again, there are great savings on an Early Bird Pass. For further details, visit mefcc.com/tickets/.
