Video Rooms

This year, our video-only rooms will be themed; one room showing Magical Girl anime, and the other showing Mecha anime. With this setup, we will be holding our own Mecha VS Magical contest! We will keep track of which room generates the most attendees! So stop on by our Video Rooms and show support for your favorite genre! Who will win?


The Matsuricon Video Departments is proud to present a new feature that we like to call VES (Video Entertainment Showcase) room. This room will be different from our regular video rooms, it will house all of our alternative video content. This includes video related panels, AMVs, alternative MV contests, abridged series, parodies, and more! More information coming soon, but for now, find us on Facebook!

AMV Contest

Matsuricon 2017 AMV Contest Registration is now CLOSED. Thank you for your submissions and we'll see you at con!

Anime music videos, or AMVs for short, are fan made videos which match up a favorite anime or multiple anime with a favorite musical song or even multiple songs all edited together in one coherent music video. AMV contests are showcases of such efforts and include awards and prizes. These contests are held in anime conventions across the country.

This contest not only includes AMVs but also, Manga Music Videos or MMVs (instead of anime the video footage is from a manga piece) and Gaming Music Videos or GMVs. This is so that the contest remains fresh for the entertainment of the audience.
