Middle East Film and Comic Con (MEFCC), the first and largest popular culture festival in the region is returning for its third edition on the 3rd – 5th April 2014 at one of the biggest exhibition venues in the region, Dubai World Trade Centre.
Over the last two years, the Middle East Film and Comic Con has grown to become the regions largest popular culture festival and is a showcase of entertainment and popular culture including Film, TV, Sci-Fi, Animation, Manga, Comics, Collectibles and more.
