A place to reflect, exchange and network, the Geneva Digital Market is open to creators, filmmakers, distributors and other players in the digital audiovisual field. Every year, it offers professionals the opportunity to meet with the most talented European start-ups on the market, to keep abreast of the latest trends in terms of digital creation, to debate new audiovisual forms and their financing, and to invest in the best projects of the moment. GIFF and Virtual Switzerland have decided to team up to turn the 2019 Geneva Digital Market into a unique professional platform in Switzerland.

From 2016 to 2018, talents selected from all over Europe have been invited to feature in the New Digital Talents program – supported by Engagement Migros, Pro Helvetia and Media Desk – to showcase their know-how and find future partners for their projects during personal, match-making meetings.

A series of debates, round-table discussions and conferences focusing on changes in the audiovisual field as well as coproduction meetings, complete the program of the Geneva Digital Market. Moreover, every year, the GDM co-hosts worldwide meetings and events dedicated to professionals (NEXT Pavilion of the Film Market at the Cannes Film Festival, Locarno Film Festival, South by Southwest in Austin, Boston’s HUBWeek, swissnex Dome in Beijing…).

Next edition of the Geneva Digital Market will take place from November 4-8, 2019 during the 25th edition of the Geneva International Film Festival. GDM complete program will be released online on October 8.


The Geneva Digital Market is supported by Federal Office of Culture, Media Desk Suisse, City of Geneva, SRG SSR, Swiss Perform, Fondation Leenaards and Migros Pour-cent culturel.
