New projects from Larry Fessenden, RKSS and John McNaughton among line-up at sixth edition, taking place July 23-26 in Montreal.

The Devil on Wheels

Having announced a first wave during Cannes, Frontières International Co-Production Market has unveiled the full line-up for its upcoming sixth edition.

Among the additional projects announced are The Designer from Glass Eye Pix (Larry Fessenden, Peter Phok, Graham Reznick), Todd E. Freeman’s The Beautiful, Enric Folch’s Duel documentary The Devil on Wheels and Huan Vu’s H.P. Lovecraft’s adaptation The Dreamlands.

They join the already announced projects from the likes of John McNaughton (Carny Kill), Turbo Kid film-makers RKSS (Elora) and Srdjan Spasojevic (Whereout).

Frontières will run July 23-26 at the Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal, following its second European edition at the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFFF) in April.

The expanded project line-up for the upcoming edition will see more projects participating in live pitch sessions.

Established in 2012 at Fantasia, Frontières has developed into a biannual transatlantic circuit between Montreal and Brussels. It is a collaborative initiative between Fantasia, BIFFF and Vision-in-Motion.

Frontières is made possible with the support of Creative Europe, SODEC, Telefilm Canada, and Concordia University.
