Sales agents, distributors, festival programmers are invited to attend and meet the creative talents behind the proejcts.

Fantastic 7, in partnership with Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia, presents 7 of the finest genre film projects, selected by 7 renowned international film festivals. These works-in-progress — in post-production or recently completed — are presented by their creative teams during a live pitching session to draw interest from investors, distributors, sales agents and genre film enthusiasts.

Fantastic Pavilion, an independent initiative by Pablo Guisa Koestinger, is a notable booth and exhibition space where the genre and fantastic film community can convene, network, and collaborate. Situated within the Marché du Film, this central hub offers a variety of networking opportunities and events, serving as a vibrant platform to honor the influence of fantastic films and video games, while propelling the genre to new horizons.
