Come Watch Window Horses with Us at the Omaha Film Festival

Good and lovely morning to you, O Comic Con newsletter subscribers. We've got exciting things in the works for this year's event and I hardly know where to begin! We're as excited and as distracted as that beagle at the Westminster Dog Show, so let's get out the treats and power through the obstacle course of life, shall we?

What's slated for March? We are proud to continue our partnership with the Omaha Film Festival, which is now in its twelfth year of bringing films of international cultural merit to the Omaha community. Each year, the OFF awards thousands of dollars in prizes to the filmmakers and screenwriters who present their work at festival.

This year's OFF takes place March 7 - March 12 at Village Pointe Cinema. O Comic Con is proud to sponsor the Sunday afternoon screening of Window Horses: The Poetic Persian Epiphany of Rosie Ming, a quirky, animated coming-of-age film that uses poetry as a metaphor for the spirit that unites humanity across cultural barriers. The film has gotten incredible buzz via its participants (including producer Sandra Oh, Ellen Page, Nancy Kwan, and Eddy Ko) and positive writeups in outlets such as Variety. Festival passes are currently on sale, and individual movie screening passes will go on sale soon. We look forward to introducing the film and being part of the Omaha Film Festival once again!

You KNOW We Love Wrasslin'

What's a well-rounded pop culture expo without a shout-out to the beloved squared circle? I speak, of course, of the art of wrestling. Now, you already know that OCC 2017 is expanding into the ENTIRE Mid-America Center. Vendors, artists, autograph tables, and comics guests will be set up on the MAC's Arena floor, and the Expo Hall is now going to be home to exhibitors and our Podcast Pavilion. Well, this year, we are absolutely thrilled to welcome PWP Live Pro Wrestling into the Expo Hall as they host a series of matches throughout the weekend.

This awesome exhibition is included in your ticket price and represents one of many fantastic regional products we're proud to showcase at OCC. Whether you have a few minutes to kill between panels or want to sit down and enjoy the show for the long haul, PWP will provide plenty of excitement, action, and even a few good laughs at O Comic Con 2017.

We <3 Our Community

Piggybacking off our other items in today's newsletter, we would just like to say how much we appreciate the connections we have made with the various community groups and businesses in the Metro area. The participation of these sponsors and partners-- whether it's through programming, exposure, or traditional cash sponsorships-- makes for beautiful synergy. Together, our efforts help to strengthen the Metro's arts & culture community.

Would you like to join the ranks of these OCC sponsors and partners (which include our fine media sponsor, WOWT NBC Omaha)? Please, let us know! We're always excited to create new partnerships and expand our current ones. Start a conversation with us via an email to matt@ocomiccon.com.

And that's it for this edition. The next newsletter comes out Saturday, March 4th. Until next time, keep your eyes on the prize and your fork in some pies! (Pies are delicious, you know.)
