Montreal Cartoon Art Festival and AI

From the FBDM's Facebook page.

Portrait: Boum

In 2023, 290 comics creators were present at our festival. It goes without saying that without their presence, our celebration of comics would not be the same.

The advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI) are impressive, but there is currently a lack of supervision and regulations to protect creators. The situation worries many, and understandably so. 

This is why MCAF wishes to position itself today as an event that focuses on art made by humans. 

We're not at all opposed to tools that can lighten artists' workloads, but art generated in whole or in part by artificial intelligence will not be considered for the Bédélys Awards, nor allowed for sale at the Festival. 

This is our way of showing our support for the comics creators.
