We are sad to announce Mr. Astruc is cancelling his 2018 appearance due to his reasonable concerns over the convention's timing and the upcoming due date of his first child! We are very excited for the to-be new parents and he has assured us he is very interested in making it up with fans in 2019.
We have also invited Mr. Astruc to participate in a video conference Q&A during Fan World, and we will keep fans informed if and as this develops. For now, we wish the best for the Astruc family!
Fan World: 2018 is proud to introduce one of our 2018 Guests of Honor: Mr. Greg Sestero! In addition with this monumental announcement, we will also be hosting a CHARITY SCRIPT READING of The Room with Mr. Sestero (and maybe a certain someone else to still be announced!) as well as the special airing of an unreleased documentary of the making of The Room which is ONLY shown by Mr. Sestero at special events!
We are also excited to host the PREMIER of Mr. Sestero and Tommy Wiseau's NEWEST MOVIE, Best F(r)iends!
Please also join Greg Sestero LIVE at the nearby Rapids Theater after 5pm on Sunday, July 8, 2018 fr the premier of Tommy Wiseau and his movie: Best F(r)iends! Tickets (with Fan World discount) available now!
Fan World originally was founded to be hosted on BOTH sides of the international border, connecting the United States and Canada over the Rainbow Bridge overlooking the Bucket-list natural wonder which is the Niagara Falls! Since 2016 fans enjoyed the CONFERENCE & EVENTS CENTER at NIAGARA FALLS (and local hotel venues) on the American side and the FALLS AVENUE RESORT on the Canadian side! For 2017, Fan World will be hosted only at the American venue - but there will still be many opportunities to walk or drive across the Rainbow Bridge to enjoy the many sights, tastes, sounds, and cosplay photography venues readily available to fans throughout the weekend! Fans may also continue to enjoy their Fan World discounts at several venues!
Each side has its perks! There are several free parking options around the American venue, but the Canadian venue also has the FALLS AVENUE WATERPARK inside and the aviary - BIRD KINGDOM - only a five minute walk away! Both sides have massive 24-hour casinos just seconds away from our venues, beautiful park areas for tourism or cosplay photography, MANY convenient food and shopping options, and - of course - myriad unparalleled viewing locations over, under, and around the Niagara Falls! If you've never seen the Niagara Falls and its amazing recent improvements, there is no better time to travel out to do so than during Fan World!
