Cognac Crime Novel Festival

Crime Novel Festtival of Cognac


The Cognac Crime Novel Festival saw the light of day in 1996 and the principal guests were novelists and graphic novelists in competition for “Crime novel” prizes.
In 2010, we added cinema, TV and theatre with their various representatives and award-winners to literature and graphic novels.

Since that time, the Cognac Crime Novel Festival has become the only one in Europe to award prizes to all five arts.  Also on the programme are lectures, debates, exhibitions, screenings in competition and preview, encounters, autograph sessions, dedication and signings and theatrical representations.

See you in Cognac from 19th to 22nd October 2023
