KeanuCon 2020: 10 Things To Expect From The Greatest Film Festival In The World
Leave it to Scotland to celebrate a true legend. The first film festival dedicated solely to Keanu Reeves was put on by Scottish film society MatchboxCineClub last month, showcasing 11 classics from Reeve’s oeuvre. At less than $30 a ticket, it was certainly an investment worth making. But hopefully, KeanuCon is just the beginning.
The man who built more franchises than Stan Lee’s brother deserves a Con that celebrates life beyond his film works. We hope next year the festival evolves into all things Keanu, surpassing ComicCon in both attendance and cultural relevance. As it quickly becomes the most talked about event in world history (probably), here are our predictions for KeanuCon Year 2.

With goodwill at an all-time high, there will be no shortage of thumbs-ups this day. The Butterly Effect will be replaced by the "KeanuCon Thumbs-Up Effect."

But only because the whole experience will be so mind-blowing no other expression will suffice.
No puppies getting murdered.
Not on Keanu's watch. Not only is he an awesome dude, he is a protector of canines as evidenced by his love-letter to dogs: aka John Wick.
All we are saying is, there better be donuts next time.
