PRESENTATION: SHOOTING IN QUEBEC
Thursday, July 24, 16:00–17:00, J.A. De Sève Theatre
An overview of the many incentives available to shoot in Québec for foreign productions (International co-production subsidies in partnership with Québec producers, tax credits for local production or post-production, as well as support with production details), making Quebec a sought-after film and television production center.
Speaker: Cyril Loreau (Quebec Film and Television Council)

PANEL: EARLY PRODUCTION INVOLVEMENT OF POST-PRODUCTION PARTNERS
Friday, July 25, 16:00–17:00, J.A. De Sève Theatre
Genre film typically requires a great amount of special effects in post-production. Some post-production companies invest in films as co-producers, others remain service providers but get involved early-on in pre-production, making the post process more effective from the onset. Different experiences will be discussed.
Speakers: Jean-François Ferland (Alchemy24) / Sean Wheelan (Filmgate) / Alexandre Domingue (Post-Moderne) / Brendan McCarthy (Fantastic Films) / Ara Khanikian (Rodeo FX)

Sunday, July 27, 14:00–17:00, J.A. De Sève Theatre
Harnessing the power of the crowd has become a ubiquitous subject in film, from its financing to its exhibition and merchandising. Over the past few years, everyone has been learning by doing as it keeps evolving. What lessons can be taken from recent campaigns?

Sales agents and producers are provided with a privileged opportunity to meet with prospective buyers. An on-site and online (via Cinando) video screening room is offered for their convenience, as well as an available rights list.

The Frontières International Co-Production Market

Now in its 4th edition, Frontières is the first international co-production market to concentrate specifically on genre film production, joining North American and European directors, producers, sales agents, distributors and other industry professionals.

In April of 2014, Frontières expanded to Europe, with a first edition (its third overall) at the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival.

The 4th edition of the Frontières International Co-Production Market once again presents 24 film projects.
