From September 6 to 12, 2019, in the resort town of Herceg Novi (Montenegro), the traditional annual Comics Festival will be held!
In 2006, the Comics Festival in Montenegro (HSF) was founded by Herceg Novi comic artist and cartoonist Nikola Ćurčin, and since then the festival has started on the first Friday of September of each year and has been running for six days.
HSF (Hercegnovski Strip Festival) is the first and only comic book festival in all of Montenegro, and the city of Herceg Novi has become the absolute center of this art form. Given the popularity of comics around the world, this has led to great media support for this festival and the promotion of the city of Herceg Novi. Year after year, the comics festival is developing, becoming better and attracting more and more attention of local, regional and world artists.
Comics as the "ninth art" was present in the childhood of hundreds of millions of people around the world. This culture gradually developed, became more complicated, made popular the best and most important artists and cartoonists, and, in the end, turned into a huge world industry, designed for all ages.
The Herceg Novi Comic Festival also collaborated and presented itself at major festivals in the Balkan region, such as MAFEST in Makarska, the Comic Show in Belgrade and the International Comic Conference in Kragujevac.
The organizers of the event said that they work closely with the only comic book store in all of Montenegro - Mr.No from Podgorica, as well as with all the most important comic book producers and publishers in the region.
