My reaction is

MEFCC is just around the corner and today we have a host of new updates about the event. The biggest one of course is the fact that the schedule of the event has been announced and it’s packed with something for everyone. Movie buffs will be glad to see that there are some excellent screenings arranged in collaboration with VOX Cinemas while a lot of workshops for manga and anime fans as well as people like me who want to learn filmmaking are present at the event as well. Plus, gaming championships.

The following is the schedule for the event for 20th and 21st April:

That’s not it. Far from it, in fact. Read the rest of the schedule at the MEFCC website.

Also, here’s the cool promo trailer that the guys have shot which has been directed by Ali F. Mostafa (City of Life). Stormtrooper walking down Dubai? Sold. Watch it below.

 
Now comes the bad news. Chad Michael Murry, who was previously announced to attend the event, will no longer be able to attend it due to a filming schedule. He tweeted this:
@MEFCC has been incredible 2 me & the show will b exquisite! Sorry 2 miss u guys this year but there will be more I’m sure. Cheers

He will be missed, but the guys over at MEFCC were quick enough to offset that with a great new announced. Max Landis, the screenwriter of this year’s surprisingly excellent superhero movie ‘Chronicle’, will also be attending the event and taking part in a filmmaking panel along with Ali F. Mostafa and Ashraf Ghori!

Are you guys looking forward to the event?
