Gala, the successful blockchain gaming and music platform have announced the launch of Gala Film. The new platform continues the brand’s commitment to providing fans with unique opportunities to enrich their experiences with levels of involvement only possible through Web3.
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.
This new platform launches with the backing of several notable partners and benefits both fans and filmmakers. 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 licence 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. For example, by giving fans ownership of content in films, they may also benefit from involvement in the film’s soundtrack, or an accompanying game based on the film.
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.”

A partnership with Oscar-nominated and Emmy Award Winning Stick Figure Productions which has produced over 400+ hours of film and television for more than 40 networks and studios such as HBO, SHOWTIME, FOX, ESPN, IFC, E!, VH1, TWC, BBC, A&E, and National Geographic
