The Venice Production Bridge is launching the Call for Projects for the seventh edition of the Venice Gap-Financing Market, which will take place from September 4th to 6th, 2020, during the 77th Venice International Film Festival (September 2nd – 12th, 2020).
The Venice Gap-Financing Market is a platform for selected projects that aims to support European and international producers to secure financing for their projects (Fiction Films, 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:
- Fiction and Documentary Feature Films: up to 27/33 feature films and international narrative or creative feature documentaries, including 3 Biennale College Cinema Projects, from all over the world will be selected. There is no genre limitation and animation feature films are welcome;
- VR Immersive Story Projects: up to 10/12 VR projects from all over the world will be selected.
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. A first Project line-up will 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 2020 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.
