(Dr. Steven Nia, Chairman of W1 Platform Hollywood, considering his topic for AFM Blockchain Conference at IFTA)


The theme for AFM Blockchain Conference has been determined by The Independent Film & Television Alliance (IFTA), as Democratizing Finance and Distribution.


Through decentralized transactions and transparency, Blockchain can attract stakeholders, reduce production costs and empower producers. Blockchain promises a frictionless ecosystem with immediate cash-flow from transactions, direct access to global audiences, transparent royalty payments and reduced piracy risk. Six presentations will cover the breadth of Blockchain’s potential to transform independent film production and distribution.


The topic for Dr. Steven Nia, Chairman of W1 Platform, who has been invited to speak at AFM Block chain Conference, is “The Hollywood Blockchain: Empowering Entertainment with a New Paradigm.”


During the AFM Blockchain Conference, Dr. Nia will introduce Hollywood W1 Platform, the leading entertainment ecosystem, which is based on advanced blockchain technology, and Smart Web 3.0 infrastructure.The emphasis of Dr. Nia’s speech is the innovations of W1 Platform, combined with its ultra-fast blockchain technology, that culminates into an ultimate entertainment ecosystem, through which hundreds of millions users may enjoy and monetize movies with ultra high definition 4K content, live streaming of TV, concerts, sports, events, catch-up TV, network recording, gaming, as well as VR/AR experience.


In addition, Dr. Nia will explain the importance of W1 Platform’s transaction speed, which is capable of high speed processing, in the range of 10,000 or more transactions per second (10,000 TPS), demonstrate how W1 Platform could offer a highly sophisticated decentralized blockchain network for secure and accountable financing, production, distribution and global exploitation of Hollywood films, TV, Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), Games, Music and other entertainment contents.


At last, Dr. Nia will introduced W1 Platform’s Smart Contracts and Digital Rights Management (DRM). W1 Platform provides Digital IDs to allow filmmakers, TV and Internet producers, gamers, and composers, artists, and other entertainment professionals to secure their property rights and to monetize their contents and IP in the form of Digital Assets. W1 Platform empowers users with peer-to-peer (P2P) connectivity, enabling users to conduct desired transactions based on their designated set of rules, all encoded in Smart Contracts.

Nelson Granados, Ph.D., Executive Director of The Institute of Entertainment, Sports, Media, and Culture and The Center for Applied Research is the moderator & host for the AFM Blockchain Conference. He is also a Forbes Contributor, a professor at Pepperdine Graziadio Business School.

(AFM Conference in 2017)

The American Film Market is the world’s largest motion picture business event. Over 7,000 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.


Participants may view more than 500 screenings of 300+ films — 29 new films every two hours — the majority world or U.S. premieres. Titles range from big budget blockbusters that will be released by the major studios to lower budget art and genre films recognized at international film festivals.

With 7,000 attendees, 500 screenings, 400 exhibiting distributors, and the industry’s largest Conference series, AFM is the pivotal destination for independent filmmakers and business people from all over the world.


AFM is hosted by The Independent Film & Television Alliance (IFTA), the global trade association for the independent motion picture and television industry, and the voice and advocate for independents worldwide. IFTA's mission is to provide the independent film and television industry with high-quality market-oriented services and worldwide representation of industry interests.


IFTA is a non-profit organization that represents more than 140 Members from 21 countries consisting of independent production and distribution companies, sales agents, television companies, studio-affiliated companies and institutions engaged in film finance.

Headquartered in Los Angeles, IFTA is dedicated to protecting and strengthening its Members’ ability to finance, produce, market and distribute independent films and television programs in an ever-changing and challenging global marketplace.
