La Biennale – Venice Gap-Financing Market

unnamedVENICE PRODUCTION BRIDGE
CALL FOR PROJECTS 2017
 
The Venice Production Bridge is launching the Call for Projects for the fourth edition of the Venice Gap-Financing Market, which will take place on September 1 to 3, 2017, during the 74th Venice International Film Festival (August 30 – September 9, 2017).
 
The Venice Gap-Financing Market is a platform to support the European and international producers to secure financing for their projects (Fiction, Documentaries, TV and Web Series and Virtual Reality) 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 40 European and International projects:
  • Film: 15/18 feature films from all over the world. There is no genre limitation and animation feature films are welcome
  • Documentary: 7/10 international narrative or creative feature documentaries
  • TV Series: 4/5 European projects
  • Web Series: 3 European projects
  • Virtual Reality: 7/8 VR projects from all over the world
 
The 3-day event will present a total of 47 selected European and International projects including the seven VR films 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 2017 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.
