Angoulême International Comics Festival

2024-01-25

The Angoulême International Comics Festival, more commonly known as FIBD, is the main French-speaking comics festival. It takes place every year in January (since 1974) and combines exhibitions, debates, meetings and signing sessions, with the main French-speaking authors being present.

 

Many prizes are awarded there, including the grand prize of the city of Angoulême, which rewards an author for all of his work, and the Fauve d'or, rewarding an album published the previous year.

 

In 1981, the festival passed the stage of amateurism. Angoulême is becoming a "permanent capital of the image in France", beyond just comics. Thus, a comic strip school-workshop and the Maison de la Bande Dessinée (documentation and research center) were opened in 1982. During the 1984 festival, Jack Lang announced the creation of a National Center for Comic Strips and the image, at the same time museum, media library and research center. Quickly, the long-term economic benefits are felt

 

In 1996, the International Comics Fair changed its name to become the International Comics Festival (FIBD).
