Featured Session: Blockchain Philanthropy: Discovering Emerging Filmmakers

Mar 11, 2022

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

In our dramatically changed world, accessibility for all is crucial to the survival of filmmaking. Kicking the doors wide open brings much-needed oxygen to the greenlighting process. What if we went against the grain of the quick-to-market blockchain hype and made talent discovery a non-profit mission? This conversation between filmmakers Roman Coppola, Tiffany Lin, tech visionary Leo Matchett and entertainment lawyer Barbara Bruni investigates how film can thrive by taking it outside board rooms and into the hands of the people who watch and love them. 

Co-founded by Coppola, Matchett and American Zoetrope’s VP of Production Michael Musante, Decentralized Pictures (DCP) fuels the next generation of independent filmmakers as a 501(c)(3) non-profit. Tiffany Lin is the winner of DCP’s beta test among recent USC graduates.
