Venice Gap-Financing Market Projects Selected


The 7th edition of the Venice Gap-Financing Market (September 4 - September 6, 2020), organised as part of the Venice Production Bridge, will take place during the forthcoming 77th Venice International Film Festival and will offer selected European and international projects the opportunity to close their international financing, through one-to-one meetings with international decision-makers.
The 3-day Venice Gap-Financing Market will present 55 projects from around the world in the final stages of development and funding.
More than 270 project applications have been received from around the world and the selection reflects the great diversity of backgrounds, content and viewpoints,  aesthetics and budgets of the projects submitted for consideration.
The selection is divided as follows:

  • 28 feature-length Fiction Film and Documentary projects
  • 12 Virtual Reality Immersive Story projects
  • 12 Biennale College – Virtual Reality projects
  • 3 Biennale College – Cinema projects

The Venice Gap-Financing Market is thus setting up one-to-one meetings between the teams (producer and director) of the 55 projects and top industry decision-makers (Producers, Private and Public Financiers, Banks, Distributors, Sales Agents, TV Commissioners, Internet and Video-platforms, Institutions, Post-Production Companies…).
The Book of Projects, detailing each project, will therefore be emailed to professionals from the film industry, to entitle them to request 30-minute one-to-one meetings with the teams of the selected projects through the Venice Production Bridge website (  
Thanks to the VPB Website , the VPB Office will  support the teams and the registered professionals in organizing tailor-made meetings.

- Fiction Films: 22 projects for feature-length fiction films (17 from Europe and 5 international), that need to complete their funding package with minority shares in the co-production, having at least 70% of the funding in place.
- Documentaries: 6 projects (all from Europe) for narrative or creative documentaries (fulfilling the same requirements as the fiction films above).
