Frontières Finance & Packaging Forum - ©Frontières

13 projects at the late financing stage will have the opportunity to work with a select group of industry experts in finance, sales and distribution. This year, the selection process was extremly competitive which is why the Forum has expanded to include a 13th project featuring a South American team coming from Chile (THE MONSTER WITHIN, Chile/Denmark).

 

 ‟ We are delighted to open the selection for the Amsterdam Forum to Latin America, thanks to  our new partner CinemaChile! The 13th project coming from Chile is very promising! ″

Jérome Paillard, Executive Director, Marché du Film - Festival de Cannes

 

In addition to Chile, the represented countries include : Canada, Iceland, Estonia, Ireland, Spain, Turkey, Belgium, Sweden, Germany, Denmark, Ethiopia, the United Kingdom and the United States.


“After 5 years of continual development, growth, and innovation, Frontières has become the generally acknowledged leader in the genre film industry as a market and networking facilitator, and effectively works to bridge the gap between the genre and arthouse communities.”

Julie Bergeron, Head of Industry Programs, Marché du Film - Festival de Cannes

 

The line up encompasses teams behind films such as : FREE FIRE, CRUMBS, BASKIN and THE TRANSFIGURATION. The schedule of events will then wrap up with a special screening of Frontières alumnus LES AFFAMES by Robin Aubert, presented by Telefilm Canada in partnership with the EYE Film Institute and the Imagine Film Festival.
