(May 27th, 2020) As the 9th edition of the Montreal Comic Arts Festival just ended, it’s time to look at the result. This first online edition, which offered unique moments, has been remarkable in more ways than one! Highlights of the festival:
(May 8th, 2020) 26 creators, 26 anecdotes, 26 comics, one city: it was the crazy project that MCAF had set itself by launching its Ulule campaign to finance Lettres à Montréal. An even bigger project knowing that the campaign was launched at the start of the global coronavirus crisis!
(May 4th, 2020) While the Montreal Comic Arts Festival has taken on the challenge of moving to a 100% online event, just a few weeks ago, the team is pleased to announce the official programming for its 9th edition.
(May 1st, 2020) The Montreal Comic Arts Festival is pleased to announce the finalists for the Bédélys Awards. Presented for a 21st consecutive edition, and organized for the second time by MCAF, these awards recognize the best comics of 2019. The rigorous selection is made by a jury of readers who are professionals from the literary world.
(Montreal, April 22) After Delaf and Dubuc, Jacques Ferrandez, Seth, Jean Paul Eid, Boum, Meags Fitzgerald and Liniers, for the 9th edition the Montreal Comic Arts Festival called on the talented Axelle Lenoir to design the poster.

(Montreal, April 2) 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!
In light of the ongoing developments relating to public events and the Covid-19 pandemic, we would like to take a moment to inform you about potential impacts on this year’s edition of MCAF, scheduled to take place in May.
The MCAF team is closely following all advice and warnings provided by the federal and provincial governments as we formulate our strategy for this year’s Festival.
