The Tribeca Film Festival has announced an exciting new partnership with OKX, a crypto exchange, to offer VIP passes as non-fungible tokens (NFTs). The passes will provide holders with special access to film screenings, parties, and exclusive events with the festival’s co-founders Jane Rosenthal and Robert De Niro. The passes will be available for purchase directly through the Tribeca website using a credit card or in ether (ETH) through the OKX NFT marketplace.
The design of the NFT artwork was inspired by the landscapes of Lower Manhattan, where this year’s festival will take place on June 7-18. The VIP passes cost $899 and will provide holders with unique access to the festival’s most exclusive events. According to Nate Zou, head of Web3 products at OKX, the Seychelles-based exchange is excited to leverage blockchain technologies to reach new audiences and bring the event into Web3.
The use cases for NFTs continue to expand, and the Tribeca Film Festival is one of the first to offer VIP passes as digital collectibles. This move marks the festival’s expansion into the world of blockchain and cryptocurrency and will allow them to reach a new and diverse audience. It could also pave the way for other similar events to follow suit, as NFTs have become a popular platform for nonprofits, artists, and celebrities to fund-raise and engage with their fans.
The Tribeca Film Festival is taking a major step forward into the world of blockchain technology and cryptocurrency, and their partnership with OKX is a testament to their commitment to staying ahead of the curve. With the VIP passes being available for purchase through the Tribeca website and the OKX NFT marketplace, the festival is offering a unique opportunity to gain access to exclusive events and experiences at the festival.
