XR Financing Market

The XR Financing Market is a one-of-a-kind funding and co-production program in Europe. Each year, it shelds light on a selection of around 40 immersive projects currently in development that it promotes to market players.


NewImages XR Market is a networking platform of match made meetings where the future gems of the immersive art are unveiled, pitched and financed.

Every year, the NewImages XR Market gathers 175 professionals from 33 countries and organise 450 1-on-1 meetings with the aim to connect some of the most acclaimed and promising artists and producers with influential curators, international programmers, online and location-based distributors as well as heads of content among the most emblematic tech companies.

The XR Market is an opportunity for selected participants not only to unlock co-production and distribution opportunities for their unique works but also to share the latest in immersive creation practises and engage in inspiring conversations with peers.

NewImages XR market is an initiative from NewImages festival, a pioneering Festival 100% dedicated to virtual worlds, developed by le Forum des Images and supported by Paris City council. Through this innovative matchmaking program, the NewImages Festival contributes to structure and to strengthen the XR ecosystem in order to support long-lasting immersive creation at European and international stage.
