Frontières Finance & Packaging Forum to continue in Cannes with Irish Project, ‘Extraordinary’
2017-03-07 9:00:00 : Katie McNeice
The inaugural forum ran from February 16th-18th in Amsterdam with Irish talents Katie Holly and Ailish Bracken producing the project, from director/writers Mike Ahern & Enda Loughman.

It has been announced the second instalment of the genre pitching and networking event will run on May 20th during the Cannes Film Festival, with teams from each of the twelve forum projects utilising five minutes to present and screen their proof of concepts.

Irish title ‘Extraordinary’ is said to have been one of the best received projects in Amsterdam, in addition to ‘The Existence Of Liberty’ (Zack Winfield) and ‘Animas’ (Olmo Figueredo).

Katie Holly of Blinder Films is also set to produce the upcoming 'Vita and Virgina' starring Eva Green (Penny Dreadful) and Gemmea Arterton (The Girl with All the Gifts), which explores the affair and friendship between Virgina Woolf and Vita Sackville-West.

Jérôme Paillard, executive director, Marché du Film, Festival de Cannes:
“The Amsterdam Forum brought together a very high level of expertise within the group of 60 professionals present for three days. The projects all in advanced stage of development took advantage of the participation of these seasoned experts invited to focus on this qualitative selection of projects. We look forward to welcoming them all at the Marché du Film in May.”

Lindsay Peters, Director, Frontières:
“After eight editions of our co-production market, this collaboration with the Marché du Film will bring Frontières to a new level and provide expanded networking opportunities for the genre community.

“The Forum in Amsterdam is our first step in creating a new format for collaborative development and financing strategies for genre films, which will continue in Cannes at the Platform events, as well as at the Fantasia market in July.”
