Happenings: 1st ever Festival BD de Montreal this weekend – June 1-3, 2012

At the first Festival BD de Montreal at L’Espace La Fontaine, come talk comics with a wide variety of authors, community members and our ambassador and a fan of comics, Stéphane Archambault!

The FBDM is a place to meet and exchange ideas with professional cartoonists. It aims to discover the diversity of the 9th art with all Montrealers and all Quebecers: children, families and fans of comics in general.

Many free activities make up the program: theatrical improvisations on BD, BD readings, book signings, panel discussions, and comic animations for the whole family! The various proposed activities and the educational component of FBDM make a true inter-generational event. Many exhibitors reflecting all types of comics will be present and will offer readings as varied and exciting.

Quebecois Comics is currently experiencing a boom thanks to designers like Michel Rabagliati, Guy Delisle, Delaf and Dubuc. Montreal, cultural capital the province, has much to offer it’s visitors.

In a festive atmosphere, fueled by the imminent arrival of summer, the organizer look forward to seeing you at L’Espace La Fontaine this coming weekend!
