Back-to-School with MCAF
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!
We hope you’ll check them out, because it is with the utmost pleasure we present this first batch of autumnal activities. Many thanks to the exceptional creators who have made these events possible.
Until next time!
Dungeons, Dragons, & Drawings – Season 1, Episode 3
Our new web series Dungeons, Dragons, & Drawings, which premiered at last May’s Festival, has been such a big success that we’re already releasing our third episode! What a pleasant surprise that the ongoing exploits of Auguste, Madelaine, Maurice, and the evil Drakul would be this popular!
Join us on Saturday, September 19th at 7pm to bask in the creative powers of cartoonists Laurence Dea Dionne, Olivier Carpentier, and Anouk live on our Facebook page!
Presented in French.

Support the Festival and Discover Great Comics
Did you know that the Festival now has its own publishing house? 2020 saw the formation of Presses du FBDM| MCAF Press and the publication of our first annual anthology, Lettres à Montréal, a collection of 23 original tales about our fair city created by 27 creators from here and beyond! You’ll find Letters to Monteral in our new online shop, along with our earlier collaborations like Rues de Montréal (soon to be in its third printing!) and Montréal-Lyon.
Plus, you can now pick up your copy of Letters to Montreal in local independent bookstores and comic shops, including Crossover Comics, Librairie Drawn & Quarterly, Librairie Z, and Planète BD.
