The festival 2015-03-04T16:12:39+00:00

Quais du Polar has become THE key event of the genre. Firmly established in the French and European cultural scenery, it is both recognised by the professionals and an ever increasing audience attending the different events organised by the festival.

A choice of novels, graphic novels, films, suspense quests in the streets of Lyon, exhibitions, games… throughout the four-day 2015 festival.

The festival is for all audiences: from bulimic crime fiction readers, amateur detectives, crime column fans and thrill-seeking moviegoers to curious passers-by, citizens well-informed in world affairs, party goers who love meeting people, and graphics and comic book enthusiasts… Whatever your age, whatever your gang, day and night, Quais du Polar is the place to be!

The festival is totally free except from film viewings and some events in our partner bars and museums.
