Mid April French comics and animation fest in DC and Baltimore

Here's some basic info that an organizer has passed to me - I've edited it in parts.

The festival will be held in two locations, with some events at Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in Baltimore and some at the Alliance Française, a French cultural non-profit in DC.

Ludovic Debeurne: Friday, April 16th (MICA): Grand opening & concert

Antoine Dodé : Saturday, April 17th (AFDC) Workshop

Screening of animated films at Letelier Theater (Georgetown, Washington DC)

Pascal Fioretto : Friday April 23rd (MICA+AFDC): Closing Co rédacteur de la revue de Fluide Glacial

Likely, but not yet confirmed (most deleted by Mike):

Winshluss (will definitely have an exhibition at the Alliance)

There will be a conference/forum on April 24th. This is where creators will be able to meet the French artists, MICA students, and other members of the community, as well as selling/publicizing their own work.

Details are still being settled, but it looks like it will probably be free to participate (some film screenings and exhibits may have an
entrance fee).

One final thing: we still don't have an official name for the festival! If you (or your friends/colleagues) have any good ideas, please let me know. I'm afraid it might just end up being "MICA/Alliance Française Comics and Animation Festival", which is pretty boring.
