If you’re into comics, anime, cartoons, video games, or all of the above, Florida Supercon is the event for you. It’s the only event in the city that brings together lovers of fantasy and fiction in one convention, and it gets bigger and bolder every year. Florida Supercon prides itself on being more than a comic con. It’s a celebration for sure, but it’s also something more meaningful. It’s an opportunity to engage and to learn. It’s a total experience.
This year’s Supercon is July 12th to the 15th at the Broward Convention Center. If you’ve never been, here’s what to expect:
Lots of contests!
You definitely want to come to Supercon dressed to impress. There will be several competitions to take part in, and if you want to win, you have to go big! There’s a cosplay contest, a Supercon costume contest, a kids costume contest and a supergirls and superboys “late night” costume contest for the adults. There will also be professional cosplayers on site to inspire you for next year.
Lots of gaming opportunities!
The convention will also let you put your gaming skills to the test. The gaming area will include console freeplay, retro games, virtual reality freeplay, PC freeplay, and of course, tournaments. Whether your weapon of choice is the Xbox or the PlayStation, it’ll be yours for the taking. You can also go back to your childhood with classic platforms like the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo.
The Super Geek Film Festival!
In addition to all the other exciting events lined up, there will also be a complete film festival during the show. Films revolving around geek culture, animation, science fiction or technology will be broadcast and celebrated. There will also be panels, Q&As and workshops to improve your skills. Winners will be awarded in traditional categories like Best Short, Best Comedy, Best Feature and even Best Student Film, which is open to both college and high school students.
One thing is for sure: Supercon is massive in more ways than one, and it’s not an event you want to miss.
