Bodom Selected For Frontières Goes to Cannes

Taneli Mustonen’s horror film Bodom has been selected by Le Marché du Film as one of four genre films for Frontières Goes to Cannes on Sunday 15th May, which links the Cannes Film Festival to Montreal’s Fantasia Festival and its Frontières International Co-Production Market.

Lindsay Peters, Director of Frontières, said: “With genre cinema only continuing to grow in terms of technological innovation, insightful marketing strategies, and international box office appeal, there has never been a better moment to expand the global networking opportunities for the genre film industry.”

Bodom is inspired by true events at Lake Bodom in 1960 when four teenagers were stabbed to death while sleeping in their tent. It is the third feature by director Taneli Mustonen, whose previous film, The Reunion, became the most successful Finnish feature at the domestic box office in more than a decade.
