Fantastic Market | Mercado Fantastico is an international co-production market for genre films. Fantastic Market highlights new genre narrative projects from across the world with a particular emphasis on filmmakers from Latin America, Spain, Portugal and Latino filmmakers in the United States. The goal of the market is to connect international film projects with potential production partners, sales agents, and distributors.
Fantastic Fest lead programmer Rodney Perkins and festival director Kristen Bell are heading up the effort. Jean Anne Lauer is the market coordinator. CANANA, the Mexican production and distribution outlet helmed by Gael Garcia Bernal, Diego Luna, Pablo Cruz and Julian Levin is co-producing the market alongside filmmaker Robert Rodriguez’s El Rey network.
