Organized by the Independent Filmmaker Project (IFP), this year’s nominees include widely praised performances by William Defoe, James Franco, Jordan Peele, Robert Pattinson, Adam Sandler, Margot Robbie, Mary J. Blige and more.
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 revolutionary 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 favorite creators.
The DECENT Foundation was established in 2015, by Matej Michalko and Matej Boda. A Swiss company, DECENT is focused on using the power of blockchain to take on some of the biggest issues of our digital age. At the heart of DECENT is DCore, a proprietary adaptation of blockchain technology. With DCore and deep understanding of blockchains DECENT collaborates with a number of industries, with companies like Dragonfly, Venaco Group, and more.
