Fantasia’s co-production market to run for a second European edition from April 9-11 during the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival.
Frontières International Co-Production Market will return to Brussels in 2015.
Established in 2012 at Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival, the market developed into a biannual transatlantic circuit earlier this year when it held its third edition during the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFFF).
It will run again during BIFFF from April 9-11 and feature 24 genre film projects with a primary focus on Europe and North America, 12 of which will be invited to participate in a live pitch sesson that will open the market.
This year will also see participants given access to the newly launched European Genre Film Market, which will include market screenings and a variety of sales opportunities.
Previous Frontières editions have included projects from Dario Argento, Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead, Bobcat Goldthwait and Jorge Michel Grau.
Lindsay Peters, market director, commented: “We’re thrilled to return to Brussels for our second European edition. It’s an exciting time for European genre film, and this upcoming edition of Frontières will be specifically tailored to maximise networking opportunities for genre film professionals looking to establish strong relationships across Europe and North America.”
Frontières is a collaborative initiative between the Fantasia International Film Festival, Vision-in-Motion and the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival. It is supported by Creative Europe, Telefilm Canada and SODEC.
