From 7 to 11 October, the Tinta International Comics Festival will take place in Ljubljana, again inviting you to discover and explore contemporary Slovenian and foreign comics creativity. This year’s programme places four exhibitions by excellent comics artists at its core.
The exhibitions will be accompanied by discussions, workshops, a children’s programme and a comics fair at Kino Šiška on Saturday, offering a broad selection of local comics publishers, stores and second-hand sellers.
The varied accompanying programme will cover nearly all of October, with Tinta spilling over into Maribor, Koper and Kranj this year as well.
The entire festival programme will soon be available at www.tinta.si.
