Press Release - W1 Platform Chairman Accepting to Speak at AFM Blockchain Conference


Hollywood, California, USA, October 9, 2018


W1 Platform – The Hollywood Blockchain


October. 9, 2018, Dr. Steven Nia, the Chairman of W1 Platform and Wardour Studios, the founder of Hollywood’s first and leading entertainment blockchain ecosystem, was invited to speak at the American Film Market (AFM) Blockchain Conference, which is hosted by The Independent Film & Television Alliance (IFTA). This blockchain conference is the most authoritative non-commercial blockchain conference in the entertainment industry worldwide, and will be held on November 3rd, 2018 in Santa Monica, California, USA.


Dr. Steven Nia, the chairman of W1 Platform - The Hollywood Blockchain, and the chairman of Wardour Studios is invited to speak at AFM Blockchain Conference.


The AFM Blockchain Conference is the most important element at The American Film Market (AFM), the world’s largest motion picture business event, which is organized by the Independent Film & Television Alliance (IFTA). The AFM for 2018 will be held in Santa Monica, USA in November. Nearly 8,000 industry leaders converge in Santa Monica for eight days of deal-making, screenings, conferences, networking and parties. Participants come from more than 80 countries and include acquisition and development executives, agents, attorneys, directors, distributors, festival directors, financiers, film commissioners, producers, writers, the world’s press and all those who provide services to the motion picture industry.


Unlike a film festival, the AFM is a marketplace — with over 200,000 square feet of exhibition and office space — where production and distribution deals are closed. More than US$1 billion in deals will be sealed — on both completed films and those in every stage of development and production.


The forum will focus on the blockchain of the entertainment industry. Dr. Steven Nia, a senior Hollywood filmmaker and blockchain industry expert, will share the characteristics and challenges of the blockchain in the entertainment industry through this forum. He will also explain how producers could use blockchain technology to remove intermediaries, improve film net profit, etc., and other blockchain technologies that are closely related to Hollywood films, TV, VR, AR, Games, Music and other entertainment contents.
