The Confiction Pop Culture Festival

will take place from 16 to 18 August 2019 at EXPO Kraków

Imagine that… book writers, film scriptwriters, Game Masters, board game publishers, journalists and above all, fans, all gathered in one place to have fun, learn about new TV series, games and books. At Confiction we will introduce you to the creators of pop culture so that you can directly reach them, ask them anything you want!

At Confiction you will play board games and we will explain the most interesting ones to you! Whether you’re into playing RPG games with your friends or recommended Game Masters, or mobile games, we’ve got a special area for you to explore!

The youngest fans will be invited to the Children’s Zone, where they will be able to participate in workshops, get to know the authors and illustrators and see their works.

At Confiction, you will explore the vast world of connections between literature, comics and the cinema, listening to actors, screenwriters, writers and drawing artists.

We assure all those who long to see the countries of the Far East that we are also preparing unique attractions for them!

There will also be exhibitions, figures and models, thanks to which you will be able to take a closer look at fantastic characters or real masterpieces.
