Comic Arts Festival


The 8th Edition is on its Way

The 8th annual Montreal Comic Arts Festival will take place from Friday May 24th  to Sunday May 26th,  2019, at Espace La Fontaine in the heart of La Fontaine Park, next to the lake.  Look for the big white tents as you walk down Avenue Parc-La Fontaine!

2019 International Comics

MCAF aims to be a leading platform for the comic arts in Canada and beyond, a unique venue for encounters between the comics community and the general public, and the centerpiece of Montreal’s burgeoning reputation as an international capital of comics and bande dessinée. With this in mind, the Festival aims to become a crossroads between European and North American comics, presenting both Francophone and Anglophone works, and promoting Québecois and Canadian talents to an international audience. 

Interestingly, the more the Festival’s outlook turned towards the global, the more the theme of “The International” highlighted issues facing our community locally. What is our relationship with our foreign neighbors? How have issues of immigration directly impacted Montreal’s comic creators? What is the image of Quebec in comics from around the world? It is with these and many other questions in mind that we have created our programming schedule for 2019.
