VENICE PRODUCTION BRIDGE Regulations and Services

The 80th Venice International Film Festival is organised by La Biennale di Venezia and directed by Alberto Barbera. It will take place at Venice Lido from 30 August to 9 September 2023. The Festival is officially recognised by the FIAPF (International Federation of Film Producers Association).

The aim of the Festival is to raise awareness and promote international cinema in all its forms as art, entertainment and as an industry, in a spirit of freedom and dialogue. The Festival also organises retrospectives and tributes to major figures as a contribution towards a better understanding of the history of cinema.

 The Venice Production Bridge (VPB) is the film market of the Festival and is an essential and successful rendezvous among the cinema, audiovisual and VR professionals. Even if the essence and specificity of the VPB is, from year one, to focus on production and to make available a wide range of services, projects and networking events to producers, this unique VPB platform allows all producers to meet financiers, co-producers, private and public funds and institutions, distributors, sales agents, publishers, broadcasters and streaming platforms, VFX and post-production companies... in dedicated spaces and venues. The complete chain of production is offered to them: from the idea and I.P. [Book Adaptation Rights Market (BARM)] to the financial completion of their projects [Venice Gap Financing Market (VGFM) and Venice Immersive Market (VIM)], from work-in-progress screenings with a financial or in kind support [Final Cut in Venice (FCV)] to the sales and distribution [Market Screenings] or the linear and the streaming broadcasting [Meet the streamers (MIT)]. All these activities, as well as social events, dedicated panels and the European Film Forum (EFF) organized with the EU’s Creative Europe MEDIA programme, are conceived in order to increase business-to-business exchanges among European and International professionnals. The Venice Production Bridge will take place from August 31 to September 5, 2023 on the third floor of the Excelsior of the Lido di Venezia and on the Venice Immersive Island for all immersive activities (Lazzaretto Vecchio) and during the 80th Venice International Film Festival.
