All Day Comic-Con International Comic-Con International returns to the San Diego Convention Center. Comic-Con is the longest continuously-run comics and popular-arts convention in the U.S.

With attendance topping 130,000 in recent years in a convention center that has maxed out in space, the event has grown to include satellite locations, including hotels and parks. Many celebrity appearances, costume competitions, art installations, lectures, workshops, and the Comic-Con International Independent Film Festival take place outside of the Convention Center, creating a campus-type feel for the convention in downtown San Diego.

10:30 AM Film: Sergeant Pepper Felix's parents are worried. He is six years old and instead of playing with other kids, he hides in a tiger costume all day, invites no one but a turtle to his birthday party, insists that his stuffed animals are talking to him and has not a single human friend to speak of - nor does he want one. But everything changes the day Sergeant Pepper enters Felix's life.

After discovering what seems to be a lost little dog hiding in the backyard, Felix soon learns that there is much more to this cute canine than meets the eye. Pepper has inherited a fortune from his old master, and he has a very special gift: he can talk to children who believe in miracles. Unfortunately, the master's heirs would kill to get their hands on Pepper's house and Pepper is in dire need of some human help. As Felix finds out what it's like to have a real friend, he gets ready to face the world on its own terms, bravely teaming up with his big sister for an adventurous journey to save the life of his new pal.

Sergeant Pepper is part of the German Currents Kino Series.
