VCON 41 has ended
Welcome to the VCON 41 Online Schedule!

VCON is the oldest general-interest science fiction, fantasy, and games convention in Canada and the Pacific Northwest. This 100% volunteer fan-organized convention has promoted the interests of science fiction and fantasy culture in Vancouver BC and its environs since 1971, offering events and exhibits focused on a variety of Science Fiction and Fantasy fandom interest areas such as literature, art, media, music, costumes, comics, tabletop games, electronic games, etc. For more detailed information visit our website: www.vcon.ca.

VCON 41 will be held Sep 30 - Oct 2, 2016, at the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford hotel. The convention’s main theme is "Muppets, Puppets & Marionettes" with a secondary theme of "The Small Press Cabal".

Please take a moment to check out the "Sponsor" tab to see who has helped support this year’s event.

SEPTEMBER 17, 2016: The schedule is now as "final" as it ever gets! Which means that, yes, there will probably still be changes here and there, but generally only to resolve when we’ve accidentally placed one panelist on two panels at the same time, or if a panelist has to cancel.)

Monster Attack Team

Monster Attack Team Canada is an extraordinary club, started in 1989, consisting mostly of professional film designers and prop makers who work in “Hollywood North” as the local Vancouver film industry is called. (Stan Hyde, our Godzilla Fan GoH started M.A.T.C and Eric Chu, our Film Design GoH is also a member of the club). Club members collect rare limited edition “garage kits”. They lavish incredible attention to detail in painting the assembled models, many of which will be on display in the Art Show at VCON 41 and in a lecture room specifically set aside to focus on M.A.T.C. and the special effects industry, especially as pertaining to puppetry, stop motion animation, and Supermarionation.
