Book Adaptation Rights Market
Barm brochure 2023
The 8th edition of the Book Adaptation Rights Market (September 1 - 3, 2023), organised as part of the Venice Production Bridge, will take place in-person at the Excelsior Hotel on the Lido di Venezia, during the forthcoming 80th Venice International Film Festival (August 30th – September 9th, 2023).
Following the call which was launched on January the 23rd, the he Book Adaptation Rights Market has selected 34 international publishing houses and literary agencies.
The Venice Production Bridge will give them a dedicated area to meet the producers registered to the Venice International Film Festival through one-to-one meetings. The meetings will allow to foster lasting relationships and to make deals on the adaptation of novels, dramas, children’s literature, short stories, comics, graphic novels, essays, and biographies.
The Book Adaptation Rights Market will enable the invited publishers to propose their entire catalogue for film adaptation, rather than focusing on a single book, as opposed to other events dedicated to publishing within the scope of film festivals.
A brochure gathering all the publishers and literary agents and their new titles as well as their catalogue will be sent to all registered producers beforehand.
The VPB Focus 2023 will be dedicated to Germany and Quebéc. Additional publishers and literary agencies coming from these areas will be attending the BARM.
