The participants in the first edition of Frontières @Bruxelles are revealed


- Frontières, the first international co-production market dedicated to genre films, has just announced the selection for its first European edition

The participants in the first edition of Frontières @Bruxelles are revealed

Frontières, the first international co-production market dedicated to genre films, will be held in Brussels on 10-12 April. Created in Montreal in 2012, in parallel with the Fantasia International Film Festival, this unique market brings together both new and experienced filmmakers who will be arriving with their genre feature-film projects in tow. The projects must have a completed screenplay, must be intended as international co-productions and must be previewing on the co-production market circuit. In addition to these projects, a second “Off-Frontières” selection has been added for those projects that do not fully meet these criteria.

There are two Belgian projects nestling among the ones that have been selected for this first Brussels edition. First of all, there is Robin Hood vs Zombies by the very prolific Vincent Lannoo, whose film Les Ames de Papier [+see also:

can currently be seen in theatres. The filmmaker, who is extremely quick off the mark, is used to making genre films, as he has already tried his hand at a vampire movie – the appropriately named Vampires [+see also:

– and even an iconoclastic work with In the Name of the Son [+see also:

. On the other hand, Les Ames de Papier is admittedly a romantic comedy, but one filled with spirits. Also selected is Rabbits by Jean-Julien Collette, produced by Hélicotronc (Belgium). This tells the story of a group of friends who find themselves shut away in a mountain chalet, where they feel a mysterious urge to drink, sleep and eat, and where their wounds start to heal… 

Another Belgian project that will feature in the Off-Frontières selection is Bao, by Maxime Pasque, a tale of a couple’s exile that leads them to an unexplored land. It is being produced by Left Field Ventures
