Nova Festival is a multiday artistic event founded in 2015 with the aim to present modern artistic practice oriented towards experimental approach and mixing different genres of art and styles to the audience. Focus was on the music programme during the first three festivals, while the comic books programme was parallelly developed in cooperation with a comic books author from Pancevo, Sasa Rakezic (Aleksandar Zograf). This programme is the vital part of Nova Festival now.
More than 200 comic book authors have had their works displayed for this 5-year period. Among the most prominent exhibitions there are “Long live Cavandoli” (devoted to the animated movie “La Linea” and Osvaldo Cavandoli) and “The European heritage in modern comics”, which was incorporated into the official national celebration of the European year of Cultural Heritage in Serbia by the Ministry of culture and information.
