Middle East Film & Comic Con

by Nitin M

This is long overdue: the boys and girls at Extra Cake are putting together the first Middle East Film & Comic Con.

For the less enlightened, check out Wikipedia’s entry on the topic.

MEFCC will take place from 18-19 March 2011 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.

Well done, ADNEC, for securing the event and Abu Dhabi is turning into a cultural capital in the region with world class museums, art galleries and events.

Embracing events like the film and comic con is an indication of a mature city that recognizes pop culture as an influence on society.

I wonder if Dubai was considered or even approached, given that we have exhibition facilities here as well as access a massive chunk of the population from the northern emirates as well.

Stay clued in via the MEFCC site or their Facebook page.
