Blockchain was originally devised for the digital currency Bitcoin, but the tech community is now finding other potential uses for the technology, from feeding digital kittens to funding films. Blockchain-based funding has the potential to enable new and creative stories to be financed that might have otherwise been turned away by Hollywood studio executives. Blockchain technology is being positioned to disrupt the traditional method of financing and distribution in the film world, but what does this mean for the industry? Panelists include Mitzi Peirone, writer-director of the 2018 Tribeca selection Braid, the CTO for IBM’s Media & Entertainment Industry Peter Guglielmino and SingularDTV's VP of Entertainment Finance and Development Daniel Hyman.
