Frontières is the first and only co-production market to connect North America with Europe in an environment focused specifically on genre film production. After two editions in Montreal in 2012 and 2013, it expanded as a trans-Atlantic circuit with an additional edition in Brussels in April 2014. It is now preparing for its 4th edition, within the Fantasia International Film Festival's Industry Rendez-Vous, from July 24 to 27 2014.
