Film festivals have seen an increase in blockchain and crypto-funded film projects and initiatives as Web3 technologies continue to merge with the entertainment industry.
Web3 technologies continue to infiltrate various mainstream industries to bring innovation to old systems. This includes legacy creative fields such as the music industry and, more recently, the film industry.
This year, the Slamdance Film Festival, an oscar-accredited film festival for indie filmmakers, will see the premiere of the new film Fuzzy Head, which received its funding through a blockchain-powered crowdfunding platform.
This is not the first instance of a film festival seeing crypto and blockchain components in films that are premiering. In 2019 the Filmio blockchain platform attended the legacy Sundance Film Festival to scout projects for its blockchain-based entertainment platform.
Last year, Liquid Media Group announced its first blockchain film streaming with a slate of digital panel presentations during the Sundance festival. The company also presented the impact of nonfungible tokens (NFTs) on filmmakers and their communities.
In 2022, Russel Crowe’s Prizefighter film used NFTs to partly fund its production and became what the director called an “audience-driven film.”
Last year, film director Anthony Hopkins sold out an NFT collection based on characters in films he had already released.
Quentin Tarantino also created NFTs based on his ionic film Pulp Fiction. However, he was later involved in a major lawsuit with the film production company over copyright infringement.
