We have some important announcements regarding the 2014 edition of the Latin American genre co-production market.
Here are some important announcements regarding the 2014 edition of the Latin American genre co-production market: Fantastic Market | Mercado Fantastico.
First, we are proud to announce the official 2014 market dates. The event will take place from September 18 - 20 in Austin, Texas. Fantastic Fest will occur from September 18 - 25.
Second, the 2014 edition of Fantastic Market will offer a significantly expanded slate of activities to industry and filmmaker participants. In addition to co-production pitching sessions for projects in development, Fantastic Market will also offer exclusive work-in-progress screenings of the hottest genre projects from Latin America. There will be other changes—some small and some significant—that will help transition Fantastic Market from a fledgling co-production market into a fully-formed genre film market.
Finally, the call for pitch and work-in-progress submissions will open in late March 2014. Updated submission requirements will be made available at that time. The market website will also be completely revamped to provide a better user experience.
As always, please continue to check the market website for the latest updates. Any inquiries can be sent to [email protected].
