Organized by the Independent Filmmaker Project (IFP), this year’s nominees include William Defoe, James Franco, Jordan Peele, Robert Pattinson, Adam Sandler, Margot Robbie, and Mary J. Blige. Nicole Kidman, Sofia Coppola, Dustin Hoffman, Jason Blum, and Al Gore have already been named 2017 Gotham Tributes Artists, and are expected to attend.
DECENT recently announced a strategic alliance with Pivotal Entertainment, and the event officially launches efforts to align DECENT with the most visionary creators in the entertainment industry.
The awards are just one example of how DECENT is forging a long-term relationship with IFP members. DECENT recently leased office space in their “Made In NY Media Center” in Brooklyn, whose goal is to support and connect the next generation of media and tech entrepreneurs.
“The mission of IFP’s Media Center is exactly on point with how DECENT desires to collaborate and innovate with the brightest, freshest minds to rethink how content is created, monetized and consumed for the global marketplace,” said Matej Boda, Founder and Executive Director of DECENT.
DECENT is a blockchain-enabled technology providing creators instant access to a global marketplace. In addition to allowing individuals to price their content, DECENT eliminates third-party fees, provides instantaneous payment, and simplifies crowd-funding. For the consumer, DECENT offers the convenience and reliability of traditional distribution channels as well as the ability to directly support their favourite creators.
