Hi there! Welcome to the LeakyCon Sched.org! Please note, that signing up for this site or indicating which sessions you will be at is not at all required. You cannot reserve a seat to a session on this site; if a session looks "full" it’s only because we input the capacity of the rooms. All sessions at LeakyCon are first-come first-serve except for the autograph and photo-booth sessions that indicate otherwise. Lit programming may still only be attended by those who have a Lit badge (these are now sold out). Again: you do not have to sign up for this site or use it in any way in order to go to any event at LeakyCon. it’s a way for you to find other people who are interested in the same things you are, and a way for you to show your friends on Facebook, Twitter, and beyond what you’re interested in at the conference. But it is not in ANY way a ticketing system. We hope you enjoy surfing the schedule!

Finding Hogwarts with Live Commentary

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Finding Hogwarts was born in the year following the release of the final Harry Potter book in the attempt to answer what makes the series and fandom so special. It is a documentary telling the stories of seven of Harry's biggest fans - their experiences including the fan conventions, premieres, midnight releases, and their overseas journey they took together to find Hogwarts. Since its premiere at LeakyCon 2011, Finding Hogwarts has since been updated and enhanced with new material. This screening will include the first and only film commentary performed live featuring the entire "Finding Hogwarts Seven."
