The Venice Production Bridge will give them a dedicated area to meet the producers registered to the Venice International Film Festival through one-to-one meetings. The meetings will allow to foster lasting relationships and to make deals on the adaptation of novels, dramas, children’s literature, short stories, comics, graphic novels, essays, and biographies.

The Book Adaptation Rights Market will enable the invited publishers to propose for film adaptation, both newly acquired titles, as well as their entire back catalogue, rather than focusing on a single book, as in other events dedicated to publishing within the scope of film festivals. Ever since its first edition, the Book Adaptation Rights Market has met with great success as proven by the publishers’ requests to return to this particular event, as well as by a growing demand from the producers looking for original intellectual properties (IP).
