The Venice Production Bridge is launching the Call for Projects for the sixth edition of the Venice Gap-Financing Market, which will take place from August 30th to September 1st, 2019, during the 76th Venice International Film Festival (August 28th – September 7th, 2019).
The Venice Gap-Financing Market is a platform for selected projects to support the European and international producers to secure financing for their projects (Fiction, Documentaries and VR Immersive Story Projects) through one-to-one meetings with potential and pertinent international professionals (producers, sales agents, distributors, financiers, broadcasters and funds). All the invited professionals are decision-makers.
This call is open to European and International projects for the following categories:
The 3-day event will present up to 45 selected European and International projects and VR Immersive Story Projects developed through the Biennale College Cinema Virtual Reality.
A tailor-made initiative of this kind requests a real confidentiality for the producers and the partners already in place and a first Project line-up will therefore be sent to selected potential financiers and professionals in order to allow them to register to this co- production market.
The catalogue detailing each film project will then be emailed to the registered professionals by the beginning of July 2019 to entitle them to request 30-minute one-to-one meetings with the producers of the selected projects. The Venice Gap-Financing Market will set up these meetings in accordance with the availability of the participants and meetings slots. Each participant will receive a personalised meeting schedule a few days before the event.
