October 18 – 20, 2019,               Emeryville, ca



AfroComicCon is an annual comic convention to promote and empower diverse artists in the arts, media, and entertainment industry.  There is a large under-representation of Blacks, Latinos, and Asians in the art and media entertainment and AfroComicCon seeks to promote and empower these diverse artists by providing a platform and venue for them to share their artwork with the community.

Mini Film Festival

 AFCC Mini Film Fest is a division of AfroComicCon and our 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, featuring contemporary, interactive works of art showcasing the work of creators and filmmakers of all colors, while focusing on women and POC. 


Our third annual event, AfroComicCon 2018, will take place on October 18-20, 2019 at the SAE Expressions College in Emeryville, CA. The inaugural event in 2017 was a huge success, drawing more than 300 community members.
