Frontières@Brussels: Submissions For Annual Co-Production Market Are Open
What was one of my best kept secrets, for about a year and half, was that if there was any weekend to attend the Fantasia International Film Festival it was the second weekend during the Frontières Co-Production Market. 

But like all good things that are awesome, and the news that we were not allowed to start a Frontières Fight Club and enforce rules one and two, word does get out and now it is the busiest weekend of the festival. I imagine the same must be for the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival when Frontières comes to town. 

Filmmakers, financiers, producers, buyers and sellers alike will descend into Brussels this Spring for the third annual co-production market, European edition. Frontières is now taking submissions


The Frontières International Co-Production Market is now accepting project submissions for its third annual European edition, which will take place March 30 - April 1 next year during the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival. Filmmakers will have until December 11 to submit their projects. 


Frontières will select 20 genre film projects with a primary focus on Europe and North America. Project participants are invited to partake in a 3-day networking event with the leaders of the international genre film industry. Projects will participate in a live pitch session that will open the market and partake in one-on-one meeting sessions, panels, workshops and networking sessions.


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 Brussel in April at the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival. Previous Frontières editions have featured projects from Dario Argento, Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead, Joe Dante, Larry Fessenden, Bobcat Goldthwait, Stuart Gordon, Jorge Michel Grau, Gigi Saul Guerrero, Bruce McDonald, John McNaughton, Alexandre Philippe, RKSS Films, Simon Rumley, Jovanka Vuckovic and Andrzej Zulawski. Frontières selects projects from both established and emerging filmmakers.


"We're thrilled to return once again to Brussels for a third year," says Lindsay Peters, Market Director. "Our 2015 editions saw a new energy in finance and production partners attending Frontières that led to more deals being made at a faster pace than ever before, and we're very excited to now look towards 2016 and discover the next wave in genre talent."


The Frontières International Co-Production Market is a collaborative initiative 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, and of Visit Brussels and the Brussels Capital-Region.
