After months of writing letters, e-mails and phone calls trying to talk Gaumont TV and/or Creation Entertainment into holding a North American-based HANNIBAL Con and getting nowhere, I finally came to the conclusion that if it was gonna happen, it had to be fan-run.
I'm a fan. I can pull together some of my Fannibal pals based in North America and we can talk it through to see if this was something we were able to do. We did and we are!
So, this campaign is to fund the efforts of that group of North American-based Fannibals. We come from all walks of life. We cover the age range from our early 20's to late 50's. We work in different fields and live on both coasts and towns in-between!
As fans we have great love for Bryan Fuller's Hannibal, it's cast, writers and the remarkably talented community of Fannibal Artists that has sprung up around our beloved show.
So here we are, creating this fan-run celebration, inviting the worldwide Fannibal family to join us at the first North American-based Hannibal CON - FannibalFest Toronto 2017.
