In the wake of the current COVID-19 pandemic, online events have been booming for months. As is the case of the Film Festival in South Korea, which will be marked by the support of Blockchain technology and will be broadcast by MovieBloc. A platform Blockchain-based media distribution system.
The event will work with Blockchain technology
Precisely, the Gyeonggi Film School Federation 2020 and Blockchain-based film distribution firm MovieBloc will forge an alliance.
Specifically, to hold the sixth edition of the “Gyeonggi Film School Festival”. In a fully digital format, online.
As the Fn News announcement highlights, the event is scheduled to take place between September 25 and October 4. The truth is that 70 films will be screened through the platform, enabled for both mobile devices and computers.
The MovieBloc platform
It should be noted that the MovieBloc platform provides access to different film titles. Awarded at various film festivals.
Equally important, users can earn rewards through its native token, called MBL. To which they access thanks to different activities within the system.
In this regard, the CEO of MovieBloc, Kang Yeon-kyung indicated that:
“MovieBloc already has previous experiences in this kind of initiative. Therefore, in the future, it hopes to expand further, both in South Korea and internationally. ”
Highlights of the Online Film Festival
During the event, by guaranteeing remote access, users will have an “online cinema” experience.
According to Fn News, the festival audience will be able to comment online and rate the participating films.
In any case, attendees will also be able to contribute in other ways, such as providing foreign language subtitles for various films. As a curious fact, in exchange for additional rewards in the form of tokens.
Similarly, video clips of the opening and closing ceremonies and various footage of the event will be released on MovieBloc for three days, until the 27th. And more than 70 screenings will be shown during the 10 days of the event.
So the films will consist of a film by students from the Gyeonggi Film School Federation and international film schools from the United States, Taiwan, Japan, China and Hong Kong.
Additionally, the online film festival will also feature a Webinar program for International Film Schools. So, faculty members from nine foreign schools will attend and will be supervised by professors from the Gyeonggi Film School in Korea.
In closing, Kang Yeon-kyung said that she hopes this new model “Can coexist with national and international film festivals and with the film industry.”
