The Middle East Film & Comic Con opened its doors last weekend.
The Middle East Film & Comic Con (MEFCC) commenced its 9th year at the Dubai World Trade Center last weekend that brought all pop culture, anime, comic and gaming fans in one roof. Despite the recent coronavirus threat, it was made sure that attendees are all safe, with thermal monitors placed at entrances and hand sanitizers placed all around the event and there were also medical teams on standby as well.
MEFCC also saw various celebrities attending the show, which includes Mena Massoud from the recent Aladdin remake, John Rhys-Davies, the dwarf warrior Gimli from The Lord of the Rings, Joseph David-Jones from TV shows Nashville and Arrow, Superman Returns star Brandon Routh and Daredevil and The Defenders star Elodie Yung. Even Kevin Sussman, who played Stuart in The Big Bang Theory was present to meet fans.
Aside from celebrity panels and booths where you can view and purchase different pop culture stuff, MEFCC also offered workshops on aspiring artists. There was even a screening of the Oscar-winning movie Parasite. But one of the best parts of the con was the incredible cosplay competition, where everyone came in dressed as superheroes, robots, and kaiju.
The Middle East Film & Comic Con originally took place in 2012 and quickly became one of the largest pop culture events in the Middle East.
