“X-Fest”  & X-Files News Partner For Event Coverage!



OGLESBY – With “X-Fest: 25 Years of The X-Files” on the way, This Con Life has partnered with the world’s largest X-Files fan news site to become the official news provider of “X-Fest”!

X-Files News (www.xfiles.news) is the only fan news website authorized by 20th Century Fox to advertise The X-Files franchise for over a decade. Their goal is to provide relevant information to the X-Files fan community while also promoting events or projects that potentially appeal to that same community. “X-Fest” hits the mark on both as X-Files News will be onsite to provide real time coverage of the event!

"We're excited to team up with the X-Fest team” says Avi Quijada, Editor-In-Chief of X-Files News. “This gathering is the perfect opportunity to celebrate such an important anniversary with the fans that have been the fuel of our organization and that have changed and challenged the definition of the word Fandom."

 “As fans of the show itself, having an opportunity to celebrate 25 years of “The X-Files” as well as the show’s brand new 11th season, told us the timing couldn’t be any more perfect” said Jay Repsel, the Promoter and CEO of This Con Life. “When the opportunity arose to work with a reputable and expansive news site to help promote our event and get the fanbase excited, it was a definite no brainer.”

“X-Fest” will be held at Celebrations 150 in Utica, IL on Saturday March 3rd, 2018 and will feature a celebrity convention, Q&A panels with the stars, as well as episode screenings of some of the most popular episodes of the series. Headline guests include Mitch Pileggi (Asst. Director Walter Skinner), William B. Davis (CSM), Doug Hutchison (Eugene Victor Tooms) and Annabeth Gish (Special Agent Monica Reyes) making her first convention appearance ever and many more rare and first time ever appearances!
