As part of their second Frontières international co-production market, Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival has revealed its Off-Frontières selection of film projects.
The selection includes three projects from Québec, including Eddie: The Sleepwalking Cannibal director Boris Rodriguez’s next feature (Emerald Falls), as well as the latest documentary from Rewind This! director Josh Johnson (Canuxploitation).
Frontières market director Stephanie Trepanier told Screen: “We’re happy with the diversity of the Off-Frontières line-up. It allows us to feature more local projects and projects in a wider range of development stages.
“We’re also seeing more filmmakers with their first feature film project in there, which pleases us. The discovery and promotion of new genre filmmakers has always been an important element of Fantasia, and Frontières allows us to support them at an even earlier stage.”
