FRONTIÈRES International Co-Production Market

Montreal - July 18th - 21st 2019

Over the course of 4 days at Concordia University, at the Fantasia festival headquarters, FRONTIÈRES presents 20 FRONTIÈRES projects in development (10 European and 10 North American) which are presented to a large and diverse group of prominent industry professionals (producers, financiers, sales agents, distributors). The 20 Frontières@Fantasia projects participate in an opening pitch session to the 450 industry professionals in attendance, who then meet one-on-one with the projects via a meeting scheduling service. Other activities include a Work-in-Progress presentation, round-table networking sessions for producers without a project, panels addressing new trends in genre cinema, and networking cocktails. FRONTIÈRES delegates are also invited to attend Fantasia festival screenings with priority access to buyers, and are provided access to an online video library.
