From the Press Release
Montreal, Thursday May 15, 2014 – Just over a month after its first European edition in Brussels, the Frontières International Co-Production Market has selected the official line-up of Frontières projects for its 4th edition.

Frontières is the first and only co-production market to connect North-America with Europe in an environment focused specifically on genre film production. After two editions in Montreal in 2012 and 2013, it expanded as a trans-Atlantic circuit with an additional edition in Brussels in 2014.
The Frontières International Co-Production Market is an initiative of the Fantasia International Film Festival, in collaboration with Vision-in-Motion and the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival. The event in Montreal is made possible thanks to the generous support of the MEDIA Mundus program of the European Union, Telefilm Canada and SODEC.
