Project submissions for Frontières@Fantasia 2016 are now CLOSED

8th edition: Montreal – July 21 – 24

Established in 2012 at the Fantasia International Film Festival, Frontières has since developed into a biannual transatlantic circuit – taking place in Montreal in July at Fantasia, and Brussels in April at the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival. Frontières has become an essential networking destination for industry professionals seeking to stimulate the co-production and co-financing of genre films. The Frontières International Co-Production Market is a collaboration between the Fantasia International Film Festival, Vision-in-Motion, and the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival, and is made possible thanks to the generous support of Creative Europe, Telefilm Canada, and SODEC.

For each edition, we select projects that represent innovation and new perspectives in genre film, from both emerging and established filmmakers. Through one-on-one meeting sessions, consulting services, workshops, panels, and networking cocktails, Frontières provides an ideal opportunity to establish significant connections with a wide range of seasoned industry professionals from across North America and Europe.


We look forward to seeing you in 2017!

  • Live pitch sessions from the selected projects
