A total of 16 projects have been selected to take part in the Frontières Platform at this year’s Cannes Marché du Film, with the second edition of the genre event set to run from May 12-13.

The Frontières Proof Of Concept Presentation on May 12 will include 10 projects in advanced financing stages, presenting completed teaser trailers to prospective partners. Among the 10 are Whitaker directed by Casey Walker, with the Rook Films team of Andy Starke, Pete Tombs and Ben Wheatley producing. It was previously one of the 13 projects in the Frontières Finance and Packaging Forum in Amsterdam earlier this year.

Six features in post-production or recently completed will present in the Frontières Buyers Showcase on May 13, with producers screening footage for buyers, sales agents and festival programmers. Titles in this section include Ghost Town Anthology, a winter-set fantasy drama directed by Denis Côté (Bestiaire), inspired by author Laurence Olivier’s 2015 novel.

Frontières has also unveiled the Avanpost Digital Cube Post-Production prize, which will be presented to one project from this year’s Finance and Packaging Forum with an award of $150,000 of in kind post-production services through Romanian company Digital Cube.

Now in its second year, the Frontières Platform is a co-presentation between Fantasia International Film Festival and the Cannes Film Festival Marché du Film. It is co-funded by Creative Europe, with the support of Wallimage, Cinema Chile and Telefilm Canada.
