Liquid Media Group is proud to present iNDIEFLIX’s original documentary ANGST, with one of the first-ever screenings hosted exclusively on the blockchain for ten days starting the 21st of January (https://live.eluv.io/indieflix). Designed to raise awareness and open up the conversation around anxiety, this streaming event will benefit notable mental health advocacy organizations Jack.org and Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation.
This groundbreaking event represents the first online public access to ANGST, previously shown in the community screenings that have benefited over 2 million people worldwide. California recently adopted ANGST as part of the statewide education curriculum, incorporating the film and resources developed by iNDIEFLIX to address the growing mental health crisis in young people. Blockchain streaming is a natural extension of the iNDIEFLIX mission, bringing this hopeful and inspiring film to audiences worldwide, supporting engagement and discussion on the iNDIEFLIX Discord channel and raising funds for three grassroots charities that deal with youth mental health and suicide prevention, including the iNDIEFLIX Foundation.
Available to stream from January 21st – 31st, viewers can register for the event online by setting up their secure and easy-to-use digital wallet to claim their community NFTs for social good. This wallet serves as a digital vault and enables collectors to donate via credit cards or cryptocurrencies, claim free community NFTs, and purchase the exclusive ANGST NFT. For the fullest experience, join the iNDIEFLIX Discord and participate in the conversation.
“iNDIEFLIX’s passion has always been focused on using the platform of edutainment for social good. It is exceptionally fitting that our film Angst – which brings equitable vital mental health support for educators, students and their families – should be the film to lead the way for new technology to be used not only to spread the message of the film to a wider audience but also to create new fundraising opportunities,” says ANGST Producer and iNDIEFLIX CEO Scilla Andreen.
One of the first screenings to use blockchain technology and incorporating NFTs for social good, iNDIEFLIX will be dropping an NFT collection focused on the conversation around mental health to coincide with the streaming event and all containing streamable video assets created along with the ANGST film. The collection includes Revelation (to normalize and address our Most Common Fears), claimable upon registration with a film preview, ANGST (donate to receive the ‘why we made this’ exclusive video with the film directors, two activities from the creative coping toolkit and a digital poster), Action (Tips & Tricks so you can hack your brain to create calm including video), and Change, a special thank you that will be airdropped to the community following the event.
The process of claiming a free NFT is as easy as creating an Eluvio wallet from the event page https://live.eluv.io/indieflix. Starting 12 noon Pacific Time Friday January 21 through Sunday January 31, users can screen the film directly on this site Within the screening, users are offered the second Action NFT, and the option to purchase the exclusive film NFT ANGST. Ron Thomson, CEO of Liquid Group, states, “Liquid stands firmly in support of the work that iNDIEFLIX is creating. We are excited that this event is bringing powerful content to global audiences while demonstrating, via our partnership with Eluvio, how Liquid can assist Independent film and TV producers with approachable applications of blockchain technology including tokenization and NFTs.”
Adds Eluvio co-founder and CEO, Michelle Munson, “NFTs are built around communities, so we are delighted to provide our first series in a collection specifically focused on the conversation of mental health and minting some of the key supporting assets on the blockchain.”
