Recorded in the Montgomery Theater of the Four Points by Sheraton, San Diego Comic Fest (Friday 6th March 2020, 3pm) for The Convention Collective by Dan Berry.
Over the weekend of Friday March 6th to Sunday March 8th, the Four Points by Sheraton Hotel in San Diego was taken over by a comic convention with a difference – San Diego Comic Fest is a small, intimate, deliberately personal and yet incredibly popular comic con that harks back to the early halcyon days of the San Diego Comic-Con, some of the founders of which are involved in the creation of SDCF.
Guests, exhibits and programming put on at the event look to not only the history but also the future of comics, literature and pop culture – the entire show is designed to entertain yet surprise attendees. San Diego Comic Fest really does embrace that ethos of giving guests content that they didn’t know they wanted until it was given to them.
The Convention Collective Senior Correspondent (U.S.)/ Sandbox Senior Editor Dan Berry was very lucky to have been able to attend the entire weekend of SDCF and, with press access, given permission to record content from a number of panels programmed over the three days.
