Web3 and NFTs are widely-known but widely-misunderstood terms, making NFTY30 of great importance as the first documentary to assemble 30 of the greatest Web3 and NFT pioneers and letting them speak for themselves. Visually and exegetically, NFTY30 shows how the past and present of Web3 technologies such as NFTs have led it to be the future platform for not only film production but the creative industry itself. History will likely recall NFTY30 as a prophetic documentary, a sign-post pointing to a future paradigm of entertainment and culture that is powered by Web3.
