Festival Central Vapeur 9

21-31 march

Strasbourg & Grand Est

This year Blutch will be making a much-anticipated appearance and going all out to make up time, drawing in dialogue with Anne-Margot Ramstein, sharing his carte blanche pick of films at the Cinema Star, before participating in a round table at the Salon des Independants. Over thirty Finnish, Spanish, Belgian, Swiss, French, regional and local publishers will be present their printed matter. On the exhibition side, we welcome the following new venues; CEAAC will be showing illustrations and comics by Antoine Maillard back from a residency in California, La Bouquinette showcase Amandine Laprun's children’s illustrations, KALT will be throwing an electro party and work by two upcoming collectives, Art Majeur and Passe En Profondeur. CV9 invites you to sunbath on the East Coast in the light of a premier showing of graphic art from East Europe: watch out for Le Montrealer at the Bruche à la Locomotive in Wisches, Première Pression À Froid’s graphic creations at My Monkey, Nancy and the unclassifiable Gianpaolo Pagni, invited by Modulab, Metz.
