Frontieres to be part of inaugural film bazaar
producers, sales agents and distributors at the market in hopes of setting up deals to complete financing for the projects. Fantasia is devoted to genre pics and films from Asia, and is one of Montreal’s most popular fests. “Fantasia has always been tremendously popular with its local audience and we’ve happily seen its industry presence grow over the years,” said Fantasia president Pierre Corbeil. “The launch of a film market is a natural step in the long-term vision we have for our event. Over the years, we’ve established friendships with so many fascinating talents and key players in the international industry and have long felt that we should establish a way to better connect them.” Frontieres will take place July 26-29. Fantasia runs July 19-Aug. 7. There will also be a series of conferences during the market.
