The 8th edition of the Book Adaptation Rights Market (September 1 - 3, 2023), organized as part of the Venice Production Bridge, will take place in-person at the Excelsior Hotel on the Lido di Venezia, during the forthcoming 80th Venice International Film Festival (August 30th  – September 9th, 2023).

Book Adaptation Rights Market has selected 34 international publishing houses and literary agencies. BARM will enable the invited publishers to propose their entire catalogue for film adaptation, rather than focusing on a single book, through one-to-one meetings with producers registered to the Venice International Film Festival.

Every year the Book Adaptation Rights Market highlights a literary genre. This year it will be Children’s and Young Adult Literature with dedicated publishing houses and literary agencies. The VPB Focus 2023 will be dedicated to Germany and Québec. Additional publishers and literary agencies coming from these areas will be attending the BARM.
