The Fantasia Industry Rendez-Vous
Montreal's Fantasia International Film Festival, widely acclaimed as one of the largest and most influential genre film festivals in the world, debuted in 2012 a major new industry-driven venture: The Fantasia Industry Rendez-Vous.
The Industry Rendez-Vous features The Frontières International Co-Production Market. Frontières is the first and only international co-production market to connect North America with Europe and Australasia, in an environment focused specifically on genre film production.
The 2012 & 2013 Rendez-Vous were a resounding success, with more than 250 international film professionals attending, reaching its capacity limits.
Details of the Rendez-Vous events and participants, as well as descriptions of the Frontières projects can be found by consulting the Frontières site here: http://frontieresmarket.com/.
The third Edition of the Fantasia Industry Rendez-Vous
The Fantasia Industry Rendez-Vous will make its return at Fantasia from July 24 to 27, 2014. Once again, these four days will be packed with the Frontières pitch session, a series of conferences on the topics of production and distribution for independent genre films, various meeting sessions and networking cocktails, coupled with the regular Fantasia schedule of public screenings and parties. New facilities have been secured in one of the most modern buildings of the Concordia University campus, to allow for more meeting space and increase the event’s accreditations capacity.
The Fantasia Film Market
In addition to the co-production market, the festival will be hosting a film market within the same dates, to support the sales efforts for the features that will be part of the programming of the 2014 edition of the Fantasia International Film Festival.
Sales agents and producers will be provided with a space to meet with prospective buyers. Once again, a video screening room will be offered for your convenience.
Sales agents and distributors looking to attend the festival to scout new films to acquire are welcome. The accreditations are now open. You can apply by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline to be included in the Fantasia Industry Rendez-Vous Market Guide is July 5th, 2014.
