Overview interest facts - Helsinki Comics Festival 2023

The Finnish Comics Association has been organizing comic festivals in Helsinki since 1979. In the early years, the festival was held in the Old Student House, then around the city, and now in Suvilahti. From the very beginning, the structure of the festival remained similar, within the framework of different themes. The Helsinki Comics Festival offers public interviews, panel discussions, speeches, workshops and retail outlets for guest publishers, both large publishers and small magazine authors.
