The Litecoin Foundation is teaming up with the San Diego International Film Festival, an event that allows people to meet veteran filmmakers as they showcase their latest work.
According to the announcement,
“Attendees of the 2019 San Diego International Film Festival that purchase a 6 Day Festival pass will receive Litecoin that they can use to donate to films accepted into the 2019 Festival line-up.”
Festival attendees can also use Litecoin (LTC) to “vote” and award their favorite films.
The film or filmmaker that receives the most LTC donations will receive the Litecoin Foundation award on October 19. The winner will be awarded an additional $1,000 in LTC.
Litecoin creator Charlie Lee has forged a number of high-profile partnerships to introduce LTC to the mainstream.
“Mass adoption requires two things: awareness and real world use cases. The film industry checks off both of these boxes in a compelling way.
Litecoin has the potential to be a powerful tool for film financing, and by collaborating with the creative and influential people in this space we have an opportunity to introduce Litecoin to millions of individuals across the globe.”
