Venice Production Bridge





Fifth edition (September 3rd – 8th 2020)



Every year, the Venice Production Bridge is an unavoidable rendezvous among the cinema, audiovisual and VR  professionals involved in production, distribution and broadcasting. The ongoing success is not only confirmed by the increasing numbers (more than 2,700 accredited professionals during the fourth edition), but also by an enthusiastic feedback from all participants.

The 5th edition of the Venice Production Bridge, organized by La Biennale di Venezia, will be held from September 3rd to September 8th on the third floor of the Excelsior Hotel of the Lido di Venezia, on the VR Island and at the Hotel des Bains, during the 77th Venice International Film Festival (September 2nd – 12th).
