75th Venice International Film Festival


The Venice Production Bridge is launching the Call for Projects for the fifth edition of the Venice Gap-Financing Market, which will take place on August 31 to September 2, 2018, during the 75. Venice International Film Festival (August 29 – September 8, 2018).


The Venice Gap-Financing Market is a platform 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:

Film: 15/ 18 feature films from all over the world will be selected. There is no genre limitation and animation feature films are welcome;
Documentary: 7/10 international narrative or creative feature documentaries will be selected;
VR Immersive Story Projects: up to 15 projects from all over the world will be selected.

The 3-day event will present a total of 48 selected European and International projects including the 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 2018 to entitle them to request 30-minute one-to-one meeting 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.
