Frontières Platform Buyers Showcase in Cannes
The Frontières Buyers Showcase is part of the Frontières Platform in Cannes, a dedicated section of industry programming & networking events for the genre film industry co-presented between the Fantasia International Film Festival and the Marché du Film. The Frontières Buyers Showcase is part of the Goes to Cannes section of the Marché du Film, a program aiming at showcasing a selection of works-in-progress films still seeking a sales agent, distribution or a festival selection. To be eligible, submissions must be in post-production, of European or North American origin, and in search of a sales agent or distribution.
Submissions are open as well for the 10th edition of the Frontières International Co-Production Market which will take place July 19-22 during the the Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal. 20 projects in the late development or early financing stage (10 European and 10 North American) will be selected and invited to partake in a 4-day networking event with a large and diverse group of prominent industry professionals. Events include a live pitch session that will open the market and one-on-one meeting sessions, panels, workshops and networking sessions. Producers have until March 16 to submit their projects.
