The 9th edition of the Venice Gap-Financing Market (September 2 - September 4, 2022), organised as part of the Venice Production Bridge, will take place during the forthcoming 79th Venice International Film Festival (August 31st - September 10th, 2022) and will offer selected European and global 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 63 projects from around the world in the final stages of development and funding. More than 240 project applications have been received and the selection reflects the great diversity of backgrounds, stories and talents, aesthetics, genres and budgets of the projects submitted for consideration.

The VPB Countries in Focus 2022 are Taiwan and France. This is reflected in specially invited projects from these countries.

The selection is divided as follows:

·       33 feature-length Fiction Film and Documentary projects (incl. 5 country focus projects)

·       16 Immersive projects (incl. 4 country focus projects)

·       11 Biennale College Cinema - Virtual Reality projects

·       3 Biennale College Cinema projects


The Venice Gap-Financing Market will be setting up one-to-one meetings between the teams (producer and director) of the 63 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…). All meetings will be held on-site at the VPB venues.


The Book of Projects, detailing each project, will be published online around mid-July.
Accredited professionals from the film industry will be entitled to request one-to-one meetings with the teams of the selected projects through the Venice Production Bridge website (  
The VPB Office will support the teams and the registered professionals in organizing tailor-made meetings.
