Fantasia Film Festival announces its Off-Frontières selection

Back in May, Montreal's Fantasia International Film Festival announced the projects selected for its inaugural Frontières International Co-Production Market - the first international co-production market to connect North-American with Europe and Australasia, in an environment focused specifically on genre film production.

Now, due to the overwhelmingly positive response, the folks behind the festival reveal an Off-Frontières selection of film projects, highlighting a limited number of additional projects in a wider range of development stages and incorporating more projects from Quebec and Canada.

The Off-Frontières selection will consist of the following 10 projects:

CUT THROATS NINE (Canada) Director / Writer: Rodrigo Gudiño / Producer: Marco Pecota (Rue Morgue Cinema)
