Seven reasons you don't want to miss this year's event


Taking place from April 9-11 in the Dubai World Trade Centre, the 2015 Middle East Film & Comic Con (MEFCC) promises to be the biggest and best yet. Here are seven reasons why it should not be missed under any circumstances:


The star guests are bigger than ever…


Any Comic Con worth its salt will have a decent celebrity representation, but this year's MEFCC has really outdone itself with a roster to rival any convention in the world.
Among the many names bringing grins to the faces of film and comic fans will be Gillian Anderson, best known for her star turn as Scully in the hit TV series The X-Files. Also appearing are Angelica Bridges of Baywatch fame and the stunning Kelly Hu, who played the role of villainess Yuriko Oyama (a.k.a. Lady Deathstryke) in X-Men 2, alongside the likes of Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry and Sir Ian McKellen.
But that's not all. You can also catch 1980s icon Sam J. Jones – known for his swashbuckling portrayal of Flash Gordon – and, best of all, the now-legendary William Shatner, who has notched up more than 50 years on-screen – most notably as Captain James T. Kirk in Stark Trek.

And some of the region's best content producers will be there too


The convention is a great chance to meet up-and-coming local talent including entrepreneurs, artists and designers. Emiratis Saleh al Braik, Mo Abedin and Amna al Blooshi are just three of the industry names who'll be appearing at the event.


It's extremely interactive


Unlike most events that feature celebrities, at MEFCC, both the regional and international guests will be actively participating in panels and workshops, signing autographs, and mingling with the crowds.





You’ll get to see exclusive previews


The year's biggest blockbusters and a selection of classic genre films will be previewed at the show before they're released to the general public. Some of the world's top gaming and tech companies also use the convention as a platform to debut their newest releases, so guests can be the first in the region to experience some of the world's most anticipated gadgets and technologies.


The Cosplay is spectacular

Cosplay (the art of dressing up as pop culture characters) is a huge part of every Comic Con, and MEFCC is no different. Internationally renowned cosplayers LeeAnna Vamp, Madeleine 'Zhiana' Rose and Alodia Gosiengfiao will be coming to Dubai to strut their stuff. Want to get involved but don’t have an outfit? Costume hire will be available at the event!




The location couldn't be easier to get to


The event is taking place in Dubai World Trade Centre, which has plenty of visitor parking, is easily reachable by taxi and is located right outside the DWTC metro station.


There's a ticket option for everyone.


Starting at AED 100 for a one-day pass, the tickets go up to AED 500, which includes VIP entry, priority queuing and an exclusive gift bag.
