Our Dark Side And Short to Features Projects Announced

We are a couple weeks away from the next edition of the Frontieres Co-Production Market. Today they have announced two more programs, From Our Dark Side and Shorts to Features.

Both programs focus on projects from local filmmakers from Canada. More importantly, the From Our Dark Side program, formerly Created by Women, will bring in five projects by female writer-directors from across Canada. This was the program that brought us the fashion horror flick Slaxx.

The official announcement follows.

FRONTIERES CO-PRODUCTION MARKET ANNOUNCES

FROM OUR DARK SIDE AND SHORTS TO FEATURES PROJECTS

We are thrilled to announce the selection of five projects for the From Our Dark Side section (formerly known as Created by Women), an incubator organized by Women in Film and Television Vancouver for Canadian female writer-directors.

The Shorts to Features section is designed to give Canadian filmmakers the opportunity to pitch a feature based on their short film. For the first time, Frontières opened a call for projects and five shorts have been selected for this edition.

FRONTIÈRES is organised by the Fantasia International Film Festival, with the collaboration of the Marché du Film – Festival de Cannes. The Frontières International Co-Production Market 2021 is made possible thanks to our major partners: Telefilm Canada, SODEC, the Government of Quebec, the Netherlands Film Fund, Vidéotron and Wallimage.
