Middle East Film & Comic Con will run across three days in March 2022 at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC), where a host of international A-listers from the silver screen and streaming services will gather for VIP meet-and-greets, insightful talks, interviews, and other thrilling event activations.
