The Montreal Comic Arts Festival is a non-profit organization with a mission to be a leading platform for the comic arts in Quebec and beyond, to broaden public knowledge of and engagement with the comic arts, and to promote cultural exchanges and interactions between creators, readers, and the public at large.
Green, yellow, orange, red… The names of colors that once brought to mind the glorious foliage of autumn are now just as likely to remind us that we’re still living in a difficult time, and that there continue to be limitations on our ability to get out with friends and loved ones.
We’ve started preparing for the 22nd annual Bédélys Awards, which reward the best and brightest comics from here and abroad.
It’s time to submit your work for consideration for the Bédélys Independent Awards, a pair of prizes for the best self-published comics created in Quebec, with separate awards for comics published in French and in English.
Look out your window and there’s no mistaking it: Fall is here, without a doubt.
So, in this season of back-to-school vibes, MCAF is determined to fill up your days with plenty of fun (and maybe even educational) activities to fill up the long evenings, and all revolving around the world of comic books!
