An Online Festival for This Year

While the world faces the unprecedented crisis situation of COVID-19, the Montreal Comic Arts Festival, like many other cultural events in Quebec and around the world, has had to adjust to this exceptional situation.

Our optimistic team, supported by the board of directors, decided to explore alternative means of operation and has led to the continuation of the festival… completely online!

For the first time in nine years, MCAF will be broadcast live from the 22nd to the 24th of May 2020 on our website via our Youtube channel. The numerous activities, such as round tables, creation workshops, and live drawings, will all be adapted for the Internet. Although this represents a new challenge for the team, the prospect of broadcasting the whole festival to an even greater number of people from all over the world has us thrilled and excited.
