FRONTIÈRES@FANTASIA ANNOUNCES FULL SLATE OF PROGRAMMING
After a highly successful Frontières Day in Cannes, which marked the introduction to the market's new partnership with Cannes' Marché du Film, the Frontières International Co-Production Market returns to Fantasia for its eighth edition, which will take place July 21st through the 24th.
Frontières is a four-day industry networking event specifically focused on genre film production and financing. Following the announcement of its main line-up of 20 projects, for the first time Frontières is pleased to announce international spotlights on projects from Australia and South Africa, in addition to a work-in-progress line-up featuring multiple past Frontières projects currently in post-production, and a case study panel focusing on the upcoming virtual reality collaboration between SpectreVision and Ubisoft Montreal.
Highlights include a project from director Brandon Cronenberg (ANTIVIRAL) and a first look at the EMAfilms-Epic Pictures sci-fi thriller RADIUS. These projects join a line-up of previously announced titles including projects from director Roxanne Benjamin (SOUTHBOUND) and producer Andy Starke (SIGHTSEERS, THE GREASY STRANGLER).
