About Frontières

Frontières is internationally established as the leading industry initiative for genre film professionals. It is organised by the Fantasia International Film Festival, with the participation of the Marché du Film - Festival de Cannes.

At Frontières, we connect genre filmmakers with industry professionals and promote co-production and collaboration with Canada & Europe. Since 2017 Frontières has produced 3 annual events: the Frontières International Co-Production Market (July, at the Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal, for projects in development & early financing); the Frontières Finance & Packaging Forum (February, travelling event, for projects at the midway point in their financing); and the Frontières Platform at the Marché du Film - Festival de Cannes (May, for projects in advanced financing & post-production).

We’re working to build a community—a circuit

TESTIMONIES

Frontières has quickly grown to be one of the most significant events driving high level talent forward in the genre world. It has created a genuine community amongst its participants and I've been proud to take part, finding every event not only informative and productive but also a breeding ground for new and future relationships

Todd Brown , XYZ Films, Canada-USA

The Frontières Market is one of the major ways that Fantasia International Film Festival has been setting itself apart from the dozens of other genre-focused film festivals that keep popping up around the world. Begun in 2012, Frontières aims to be like the Sundance Institute, but for artists who prefer horror and action pictures to muted family dramas and quirky comedies.
