About CryptoChicks Hackathon for the International Innovation Film Festival

The 1st International Innovation Film Festival (IIFF) is a 1 Day Conference + Youth Hackathon. The primary aim of this event is to bring both the Creatives and the Blockchain enthusiasts together, offering them a platform where ideas, projects, and opportunities can be exchanged, developed, tested and improved upon.

From February 14-18, 2019 we show films and documentaries that have an innovative approach; be it in financing, storytelling or even films which are beyond the classic format. We want to encourage and educate artists, companies, and organizations how to be Creatively Innovative.

This year, we celebrate “Women in Innovation” - we want to empower and inspire women to be the most disruptive thinkers, leaders, and ambassadors of this age. Let's create momentum for women through an accelerated learning program, with tangible tools, insightful resources, while in the supporting arms of a gifted and talented community. Let's add a voice to their insight and rouse them to "be the change."

IIFF is a cooperation between Ethereum Movie Venture and Scenic Swisscoast GmbH


• Movies
12 International movies that have an innovative approach in either production, style, financing, community-building, or story-telling.
Spend a few more days before, during, or after the conference to enjoy some of the Documentaries and Featured Films we have planned for at the Cinématte Kino.
Submit your film at FilmFreeway.

• Blockchain
We will be teaching from the ground up about Blockchain and its applications and how it could be applied in Filmmaking, Startup companies, and Non-Profit Organizations. We will implement several hands-on blockchain use-cases during the festival.

• Event
There will be panel talks, presentations, and workshops held with experts from all over the world. Take part in the many opportunities for your personal networking with an Apéro ending off the days’ excitement.

We are very open to suggestions, contributions, ideas, proposals and very grateful for any help. Anything that boosts innovation in the film distribution and festival business. Get in touch right now with your idea, plan, vision, game, community, support, dream – get in touch quickly and let us know how we can synergize.
