Changes always reserved. Autographs/Selfies, Photo Ops with the stars and Meet & Greets must be purchased. Photographs for signing can be purchased on site at a separate stand. All guests have the freedom to cancel their appearance at any time due to film / job offers, illness or for private reasons, also at short notice. Should a guest cancel, Autograph- / Selfie- / Photo Op / M&G tickets will be automatically refunded to the account with which they were purchased. A claim for reimbursement of entrance tickets does not exist.


Get ready for our amazing Comic Artists. You can expect artists from comics and „stripboeken“ that will sign your items or draw some cool sketches or commissions for you. AND there will be a stage with a diverse program!




Our phenomenal and super impressive Cosplayers can’t wait to meet you at COMIC FILM MANGA FEST at their table for talks, selfies and autographs. Of course they will also be on stage with a panel / workshop and be judging the Cosplay Contest as well as Cosplay Parade! 




Due to the large number of different ticket-types, there is a separate shop for the entry tickets as well as for each individual star guest.

Please note that all EXTRA TICKETS for Starguests like Photo Ops, Selfies, Autographs or Meet & Greets have to be purchased separate and are not included in the entrance ticket. Those Extra Tickets need to be presented in printed form on site at the event and will be collected by our staff. A digital version on the mobile phone or in the wallet is not sufficient. This does not apply to the entrance tickets.

Follow us on EVENTBRITE and never miss an event ever again!


You would like to know what to expect? Look forward to lots of stars and artists, cosplay, props, fan groups and much more!

Photo Ops with the Starguests

You will have the opportunity to pose for a photo during the official photo op together with your favorite stars on all event days! Tickets can be purchased on site at our Sales Desk or online in advance in our shop: 1 person per ticket. The photo will be printed on high-quality photo paper and can be taken home just seconds afterward the shoot and, if you wish, it can even be complimented with your star’s signature (an extra ticket is required for the autograph). The autograph needs to be collected at the signing table from the guest.

The autograph and selfie tickets can be bought on site at the event or online in advance in our shop. We will have several charged photo motifs (20cm x 25cm) of each guest on site (close to the signing area), but of course you can also bring your own items for signing.

all your questions: they will talk about current projects and fans will have the opportunity to ask their own personal questions.
