The new edition of the Book Adaptation Rights Market

From 30 August to 1 September at the Venice Production Bridge as part of the 81st Venice International Film Festival.

Book Adaptation Rights Market

The 9th edition of the Book Adaptation Rights Market (August 30thSeptember 1st, 2024), 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 81st Venice International Film Festival (August 28th – September 7th, 2024).

Following the call which was launched on January the 15th, the Book Adaptation Rights Market has selected 30 international publishing houses and literary agencies plus 3 for the VPB Focuses (1 within the FOCUS ON LUXEMBOURG WALLONIA – BRUSSELS supported by Film Fund Luxembourg and Centre du Cinéma et de l’Audiovisuel and 2 within the FOCUS ON JAPAN supported by JETRO).

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 2024 will be dedicated to Luxembourg & Wallonia-Brussels and Japan.
