The United States is the Country of Honor at the International Comics Festival FIBDA 2019

The American Embassy in Algiers is proud to announce that the United States is the country of honor at the Algiers International Comics Festival – FIBDA 2019.  Come visit us at Esplanade Riadh El Feth on October 1- 5 and experience a variety of programs and activities.

Fourteen American award-winning illustrators, graphic novelists, and educators representing the most renowned comics’ publishers — including DC Comics, Marvel, and more, will participate this year.  They have worked on projects like, “Batman,” “Captain America,” “The Black Panther,” and “Iron Man.”

During the festival, they will conduct workshops, participate in panel discussions, and share their experiences with artists and students.  They will also highlight the critical role of creative expression and artistic entrepreneurship play in fostering economic development.

Our participation this year highlights the U.S. Government’s continued commitment to strengthening U.S.-Algerian cooperation, fostering dialogue, and promoting mutual understanding between our two peoples.
