Welcome to Frontières


Project Submissions for the 5th edition of Frontières (April 9-11 2015, Brussels) will open November 2014

Industry registration will open January 2015

The Frontières International Co-Production Market is the first and only co-production market to connect North America and Europe with a specific focus on genre film.

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 Telefilm Canada and SODEC.

For each edition, we select 24 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.


Our submission requirements for Frontières Projects are as follows:

- Completed script

- Market premiere

- Elements suitable for international co-production (*preference given to projects that contain both Canadian and European production elements)

- Majority producer or director with Canadian, American, or European Union citizenship

*If your project doesn’t quite meet all of the above, we still encourage you to submit – The Off-Frontières selection allows for the inclusion of projects that may fall outside of these guidelines.
