The twenty-first edition of the Stockholm International Comics Festival is happening on April 6–7 (plus various pre-events). And for the first time, the festival takes place mainly at Konstfack in a cross-border collaboration between Konstfack and Kulturhuset Stadsteatern! This year's theme will be "Meetings".

For twenty years, the epicenter of the Stockholm International Serie Festival has always been Kulturhuset, the Cultural Center at Sergels Torg. But as the building is currently closed due to Maintenance work, it is with great pleasure we want to announce that we have now begun a collaboration with Konstfack, and that the festival will be housed in Konstfack's amazing premises at Telefonplan.

As always, an extensive stage program will be delivered. International guests from Mallorca, USA, Canada, Germany and Poland. A large part of the Swedish comics stage will be present, including Ellen Ekman ("Lilla Berlin"), Sara Bergmark Elfgren and Karl Johnson ("Vei 2") and Fabian Göranson ("Drömmen om Europa"). More guests will be presented here soon – and we will also reveal this year's guest of honour!

Also: Young Comics Festival for the kids, exhibitions, portfolio reviews. And of ourse the heart of the festival, the big market called small press expo [spx].
