The Angers Cartoons festival on the next weekend at the congress centre

The 15th edition of the Angers Cartoons festival, due to take place on December 7th and 8th in the congress centre will introduce new local authors and should confirm its audience. While 3 000 visitors were recorded last year, that figure should increase because more authors will be present in 2013. According to Nicole Whittington-Thuleau, "half of the attendance comes from the outside of Maine-et-Loire". The event, which is the first of its catagory inside the Pays de la Loire region, has each year a topic.

After "tops of the bill, Etienne Davodeau (Le chien qui louche), Pascal Rabaté or Marc-Antoine Mathieu, there are a lot of talents in Anjou and several will be there this year", adds Mrs. Whittington-Thuleau who lists Erik Juszezak (Dantès, Narvalo, Empire Usa), Luki Bancher (En classe with me), Jean-Gaël Deschard (Bunny) or Benoït du Peloux (Triple Galop, Zoé and Pataclop). About fifty authors will display their works. Exhibitions in the congress center are planned and others decentralized in the Angers castle about La bête de l'Apocalypse, of Lucien Rollin, the Beaucouzé multimedia library about an off-the-wall western and the Higher Schoolof Agriculture with the Lincoln series. Some of these will last until mid December or mid-January

The festival is an idea of the Angers Bd association whose aim is "to promote the cartoons in Maine-et-Loire through a festival which would include Angevine culture". The 2013 festival poster has been drawn by Bernard Vrancken.
