DonQuest is a new UK fantasy and science fiction convention that has been designed from the ground up to help bring fans and the creative minds of fantasy and science fiction in a fun and entertaining environment. DonQuest is a new fantasy and science fiction convention.
What sets DonQuest apart from other conventions is that in addition to all the usual activities that you find at conventions such as cosplay, stalls and competitions we will also be incorporating a film festival in to the event.
The film festival will allow new and experienced filmmakers show their films to an engaged audience, host panels and have the opportunity to earn recognition for their work in the awards ceremony.
The comicon part of DonQuest will incorporate everything that you would normally expect at a convention such as celebrities, stalls, exhibitions and of course cosplayers. However as the convention has an emphasis on fantasy and science fiction film we will also have people involved in the film industry there to give demonstrations and talks on a variety of topics such as makeup, costume, props, stunts , choreography, green screen and other aspects of film making.
Further details on the convention will be available in the new year.
The film festival part of DonQuest will give filmmakers the opportunity to showcase their films to a crowd of potential fans and investors as well as allowing us to reward the film maker’s hard efforts with awards and recognition.
Filmmakers can expect lots of discussions/panels, film screenings and other vents to help publicise their new and existing projects in addition to awards ceremeony itself.
