Joe Dante and Bobcat Goldthwait's New Films Among 12 Projects Set For Fantasia's Co-Production Market

"God Bless America" Magnet

The Fantasia International Film Festival -- one of the largest genre film festivals in the world -- has announced the official selection of the second edition of its Frontières International Co-Production Market.
 
The program as noted by the festival: "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."
 
The projects that will be presented in the market feature a wide array of filmmakers, from newcomers to well known genre filmmakers (such as Joe Dante and Bobcat Goldthwait), coupled with international producers.
