The Frontières Platform in Cannes will return to the Marché du Film - Festival de Cannes for a fourth year, presenting 13 genre projects to the industry on July 10th and 11th, 2021. As a co-presentation between the Fantasia International Film Festival and the Marché du Film - Festival de Cannes, the Frontières Platform activities will include Proof of Concept presentations for projects in the advanced stages of financing, and the Buyers Showcase for films that are in post-production or have recently been completed.
We are thrilled to announce the selection of seven films for the Buyers Showcase which will take place on Sunday, July 11th, 2021 at 4pm. Producers will screen footage for potential buyers, sales agents, and festival programmers. Despite the pandemic, filmmakers around the world have been very prolific and we are proud to offer Marché du Film participants a first look at a variety of projects such as the very first Anime presented at Frontières, an Austrian Sci-Fi film, as well as a new Vampire movie from a Frontières Alumnus.
The Frontières Proof of Concept Presentation, held Saturday July 10th, 2021 at 10am, will showcase six projects from Scandinavian, Italian and North American filmmakers who will present their completed teaser trailers to prospective partners.
Among these fantastic projects, three represent Canada and five are, or will be directed by female filmmakers.
The Frontières Platform in Cannes is funded by the Government of Canada, with the major support of Wallimage, the Netherlands Film Fund, Telefilm Canada, and SODEC.
