Fantasia 2013: Off-Frontières Projects RevealedAfter announcing the 12 projects that comprise its Frontières selection of film projects in May, the Fantasia International Film Festival’s Frontières International Co-Production Market’s team has now revealed the event’s Off-Frontières line-up of 12 projects. Read on for the details of this latest dirty dozen.

The first Frontières announcement contained new projects being pitched by Joe Dante, Bobcat Goldthwait, Richard Stanley, and more. The following Off-Frontières projects come from such amazing talent as Larry Fessenden, The Rasmussen Brothers, and Josh Johnson.

Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival, widely acclaimed as one of the largest and most influential genre film festivals in the world, introduced its Fantasia Industry Rendez-Vous, including the Frontières International Co-Production Market and the Fantasia Film Market, in 2012. Frontières is the first international co-production market to connect North America with Europe, in an environment focused specifically on genre film production. Now Frontières has become a circuit in-between Fantasia, in July, and the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival, in April (starting in 2014). This initiative was made possible by funding from the MEDIA Mundus program of the European Commission.

The Fantasia Industry Rendez-Vous will take place in Montreal from July 25 to the 28 at the mid-point of the 3-week run of the Fantasia Festival, running from July 18 to August 6, 2013. International producers and sales agents, distributors, broadcasters, talent agents and festival programmers will converge over four days that will be packed with a pitch session, meetings, conferences and cocktails, along with the festival’s regular schedule of premieres. Accreditations are free of charge and are currently under way. They must be applied for by June 21 for the participant to be listed in the Market Guide.
