The Fantasia International Film Festival, widely acclaimed as one of the largest and most influential genre film festivals in the world, has announced the official selection of the second edition of its Frontières International Co-Production Market. Included are upcoming projects from Joe Dante, Bobcat Goldthwait and Buddy Giovinazzo!
 
Frontières is the first and only international co-production market to connect North America with Europe, in an environment focused specifically on genre film production. It was just announced last week that Frontières will become a circuit in-between Fantasia, in July, and the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival, in April. This initiative was made possible by funding from the MEDIA Mundus program of the European Commission. Frontières was the only new initiative to be funded by the program this year.
