The core benefit of Gala Film is its ability to offer a ‘Watch and Earn’ mechanic through the same blockchain technology that underpins Gala Music’s ‘Listen and Earn’ and Gala Games’ ‘Play and Earn’ ecosystem, offering fans ways to earn rewards through nodes and NFTs. With Gala Film, fans now have the power to actively participate in the content they consume, take control of their entertainment through digital ownership, and support new projects by voting on script choices or casting. Filmmakers and artists can also reclaim their creative license through a deeper connection with their audiences and the ability to distribute their content directly to the people that want to watch it.
By adding film alongside its successful music and games platforms, Gala is also able to offer an interoperable ecosystem where fans can benefit from crossover content.
Sarah Buxton, COO of Gala, said: “The launch of Gala Film marks the beginning of a new era in Web3 entertainment, led by Gala. Our ecosystem offers exceptional involvement and access to new launches, with fans able to enjoy unique experiences, empower creatives and get rewarded for doing so. We are committed to delivering fan-first entertainment, where technology is used to improve fan experiences without ever becoming a barrier to entry or enjoyment.”
