The 10th edition of MEFCC will take place in Abu Dhabi from March 4 to 6, 2022.
American film star Giancarlo Esposito will be appearing at the 10th edition of Middle East Film and Comic Con (MEFCC).
The event will run over three days from March 4 to 6 at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre. It’s the first time the festival is taking place in Abu Dhabi.
Esposito is known for his portrayal of crime kingpin Gustavo ‘Gus’ Fring in AMC’s critically acclaimed award-winning TV show Breaking Bad and its prequel Better Call Saul. He’s been nominated for three Emmys in both shows for his portrayal as the crime kingpin.
He is also known for playing Moff Gideon in the Disney+ Star Wars’ spinoff The Mandalorian, as well as for his role of Jorge in the blockbuster action franchise The Maze Runner. His other notable works include appearing in Amazon’s popular comic book adaptation of The Boys, narrating the popular Netflix series Dear White People and starring in The Get Down, a series that recounted the birth of hip-hop in New York during the 1970s.
Last week, it was announced that Jon Bernthal and Michael Rooker, former stars of The Walking Dead, will also be appearing at MEFCC.
They will be joining Game of Thrones’ Nathalie Emmanuel and voice actor Charles Martinet, who have both already been confirmed as guests at the festival.
This year’s MEFCC will offer 25 exclusive Super VIP tickets that are priced at AED 2,500 ($681). The limited-edition pass will give visitors VIP access to all three days of the event, as well as complimentary meet-and-greet sessions with all the celebrities, a swag bag and fast-track entry.
In addition, those who purchase the tickets can expect one-hour exclusive access on Friday, before doors open to the public at 2 PM.
