The largest pop culture festival in the region, the Middle East Film and Comic Con (MEFCC) is all set to be back in the region, from April 7 to 9, at the Dubai World Trade Centre. What started off as a fan huddle has since grown to include enthusiasts, industry leaders and a new generation of artists, writers, directors and entrepreneurs from the Middle East and across the globe.
It has brought together some of the biggest stars in film and pop culture like William Shatner, Seth Green, Gillian Anderson, Jason Momoa, Clive Standen, Max Landis, Sam Jones, Hayley Atwell, Kelly Hu and more.
Over the past four years, the Comic Con phenomenon has attracted well over 100,000 visitors from 25 countries. The organisers claim that the 2016 edition will be the wildest one to date.
