3D Content Financing Market is an international financing market dedicated to projects with stereoscopic 3D (S-3D) content. It was launched in 2011 with support from the MEDIA Program of the European Commission. which provided financial backing for the first two years, during which over 90 projects were submitted for a total budget of about 440 m EUR. Now in its third edition, 3DFM is organized, as in previous years, with the support of peacefulfish. 3DFM is the world’s only international financing market fully dedicated to 3-SD projects.

3DFM functions not only as a project market but also as a forum for discussion, networking and education focused on producing, financing and distribution of S-3D content. For the first time, 3DFM is now open to eligible candidates from anywhere in the world. A pre-selection committee will name 10-15 projects from those submitted and their producers will pitch to a panel of financiers, investors, sales agents, producers and co-producers. One Best Project & Pitch award will be presented at the 3DSM ceremony the evening of 6 December that is organised in cooperation with International 3D Society.
