CryptoFest 2014

Are you passionate about crypto currencies?
Do you see the massive potential for crypto currencies to effect real & lasting positive changes in our world?
Do you want to help get the message out and spread adoption among 'ordinary people' across the globe?
If you answered yes above, then WE would like to ask for your help!

CryptoFest 2014 will be the world’s first crypto currency short film festival. It will be a celebration of one of the most incredible inventions of modern times - "trustless consensus via a distributed P2P network using a decentralised blockchain"!

Do you know what that description actually means, 'trustless consensus via a distributed P2P network using a decentralised blockchain'? Could you help explain the implications of these concepts to ‘Jo Six-Pack’, help him understand why crypto currencies are relevant to his future well-being?

Have you looked into the future and imagined the positive changes that are possible from widespread adoption and use of cryptographic currencies?

If you have, then we would like to ask for your help in explaining the relevance of these technologies and applications to ordinary people who haven't heard of bitcoin yet, or who maybe have, but mistakenly think crypto currencies like Bitcoin are just for criminals buying ’drugs, weapons & nasty porn’ online.
Can you help us get the message out that crypto currencies are going to be part of EVEYONE’S future, and they’ll probably be as revolutionary to everyday life as maybe even the internet itself?
Can you help us explain and describe in fun and interesting ways why crypto currencies are relevant to ordinary people?

CryptoFest wants to encourage all those people around the world, like you, who have looked into the future and have seen ‘what’s coming’ to make short video & multimedia presentations to help spread the message to the rest of humanity.
Crypto currencies can help  promote freedom and prosperity for ALL people across the world. They are the future of money and payment systems globally, and they are beyond the control and manipulation of big corporations, banks, and governments. The basic ideas behind bitcoin are owned by everyone, and can be used and developed by anyone.

It might be too early to tell which versions of blockchain technologies end up being successful and widely adopted, but for the purposes of CryptoFest 2014 that is not our concern. Our goal is to promote ALL crypto currencies by amassing the largest collection of short films and multimedia presentations we can that are both entertaining, and informative, on the subject of 'cryptographic currencies'.

As early adopters of crypto currencies ALL of us have the chance to do our bit to help shape how these amazing technologies are presented to the wider world. CryptoFest wants to help make crypto currencies more accessible, more interesting, and more relevant to ordinary people.

We need your help!

We would like to encourage everyone involved with the crypto movement to work together as a community on this endeavor, and for the moment we ask that we all put aside our own personal preferences for one coin over another. CryptoFest is not interested in promoting any coin(s) in particular. CryptoFest is about promoting crypto currencies generally!

Please help us promote CryptoFest, and help us attract the best and brightest talent to this noble cause. If you know of people with film and multimedia skills please encourage them to enter CryptoFest. Please consider entering yourself.

CryptoFest is first and foremost a celebration of the 'crypto currency' movement, and the point is NOT to make Academy Award winning productions (although we do hope to receive some high quality entries ).

Rather, CryptoFest is about promoting crypto currencies generally to the 6.9 biliion people who haven't heard of them yet, so we encourage you to put your effort more into the ‘message’, and even if the presentation and production values of your entry are ‘simple’, don’t worry!

If your message is sincere, and the information and ideas presented are positive and/or informative and/or enjoyable, then your entry is perfectly valid, and it can still be very effective, and CryptoFest will gladly accept even very simple & humble submissions … and you could still win a prize for a well thought out, but simple entry!

Entries can be funny!
Entries can be informative!
Entries can be serious!
Entries can be political!
Entries can be .... anything you want .... as long as the subject matter is 'Crypto Currencies'

Fiction, non-fiction, animation, poetry, musical, spoken word monologues, interviews, debates etc etc.

The sky’s the limit. You might spend 100 hours on your entry, or maybe you can get your point across with 10 minutes work. That's the nature of 'art'!

We appreciate all sincere efforts, so don’t be put off if you don’t have a lot of multimedia skills. If you have something to ‘say’, and you have a smartphone with a camera, and you can upload a video to youtube, then you have all the ingredients you need to enter CryptoFest. It’s the message that counts!

You can mention your favourite 'coin' project if you want, but CryptoFest IS NOT about promoting one coin in particular, and it's not about 'laying the boot' into any coin projects that you don't like either. You can use satire, and you can get 'political' as much as you like, just don't be unnecessarily mean and negative for the sake of it, (unless you make it very entertaining and thought provoking, in which case we'd probably allow it).
You can always get away with being a bit more ‘edgy’ when you’re art is 'good'! CryptoFest will probably be the same, so if you want to push the envelope a bit, then you’ll probably need to put in more time, effort & thought to get away with it.

We reserve the right to reject any entries we feel are too promotional of one particular project, or too negative and bitchy.
CryptoFest is a celebration of all things Crypto, and we are unashamedly trying to focus on the positive elements. If you do feel the need to lay the boot in, do it to fiat & central bankers, not another coin project.

Obviously nothing racist, defamatory, and don’t infringe anyone’s copyright.
