We proudly announce that the FIRST fantasy, games and science fiction convention will be held at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture in Split (FESB) on July 17th-19th 2015 !
Special guests include: Iva Hasperger, Aleksandar Ziljak and Lemonade 3d.
Iva Hasperger was born March 10th 1977. in Zagreb, Croatia. She is a graduate of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and has performed in theater productions from Shakespeare to Tennessee Williams. Strong roots in a classical and European background often inform Iva’s work-perhaps most notably in her performance as “Ilona” in the feature “Vlad” starring Billy Zane and Francesco Quinn. Hasperger plays a 15th century girl who only speaks middle English. In preparation for the shoot, the actress consulted Professor Edward Condron of UCLA to ensure accuracy with the complex ancient tongue.
