Gismart, the leading publisher of entertainment-focused apps and games, has just announced its partnership with folk-hop group Judah and the Lion, as part of the launch of their new artists programme.

With 500 million downloads and 300,000+ new users daily, Gismart is opening its doors to aspiring artists to further build on this success whilst equally embracing new and growing talent and helping them build on their own successes. The programme offers a new and unique opportunity for artists who can use their games to promote fresh music, exclusive content, and a host of exciting opportunities across a global audience of music fans. Gismart will also be offering customised solutions for artists where they can develop apps and games where the artists themselves can be featured as a character for that added personal touch.

For their first partnership since launching the programme Gismart is partnering with up-and-coming folk-hop talent Judah and the Lion through the application Beat Maker Go (iOS, Android) – an award-winning, music-making application boasting over 20 million downloads and a host of high-profile partnerships. Following the success of their collaboration with EDM superstars The Chainsmokers, the company has since further established itself as a digital platform for world-renowned artists.

Beat Maker Go is Gismart’s flagship music product with over 20 million installs and millions of active users. The app regularly makes it to the App Store top charts and continues to retain its premier spot as the most popular app for electronic music creation two years after the global release. Its popularity offers a great opportunity for artists to benefit from and promote their music and connect with new and existing fans.

Beat Maker Go presents a unique music entertainment platform for artists that allows users to create and play original music through ‘sound packs’ across various music genres – hip hop, dubstep, EDM, house, techno, pop and more. Sound packs are easy-to-play ‘musical toolboxes’ comprised of different sounds, beats, and loops sourced from a featured artist’s catalogue. Users instantly produce music using these ‘sounds’, before sharing their tracks with either a like-minded community of musicians, non-musicians, or any chosen network. Judah & the Lion will be providing the sounds from their incredible back catalogue to allow users to dive into their music and start creating! This generates new means for artists to connect with the global audience of music fans while simultaneously providing their own fans new opportunity to explore their music in a different way.

“We’re so excited to be working with talent as exceptional as Judah & the Lion. Together, we’re going to bring our audiences a genuinely unique musical experience that only Beat Maker Go can deliver. With millions of users all over the world, we want to support up-and-coming artists, as well as those more established, by connecting them with the global audience of music fans on a new, deeper level in the hopes of inspiring a new wave of creativity.” Antonia Gilham, VP Music, Gismart.

“We are thrilled to be working with Gismart and Beat Maker Go! It’s a fun product and it’s an honour to be selected for this partnership. Looking forward to hearing what the fans come up with around these songs.” Judah & the Lion.

The partnership will culminate with a global beat-making competition that’s set to unite users from across the world as they compete to write the best track using the provided sounds of Judah & the Lion. The band themselves will judge these tracks, as well as the experts at Gismart, before awarding the winners with prizes to build upon their musical talent.

More information regarding this contest is due to follow in the coming weeks.

Gismart and Judah & the Lion are collaborating to inspire creativity while uniting their audiences to experience music in a unique capacity. This continues the company’s endeavours to marry technology and musical creativity to establish a digital platform that’s ideal for delivering innovative music to new heights.

Baloji and Emmanuelle Béart will co-preside over the Caméra d’or Jury of the 77th Festival de Cannes

The 77th Festival de Cannes will feature an unprecedented yet self-evident pairing at the head of the Caméra d’or Jury. As rich dialogue and inspiring gaze arise from encounters, the Festival de Cannes is eager to bring together Emmanuelle Béart and Baloji to co-preside over the Jury that will honor one of the first films presented in the Festival’s Official Selection or its parallel sections.

An unprecedented pairing since French actress Emmanuelle Béart and director and songwriter Baloji, who evolves in Belgium and the Democratic Republic of Congo, have never met. She has worked with some of the world’s greatest filmmakers, dazzling both screen and stage with her incandescent performance. He is a bold, visionary creator, who made two short films before receiving the New Voice Prize at Un Certain Regard in 2023 for his acclaimed debut feature Omen.

 

An obvious pairing as both are free spirits with no limits, who rely on their art to achieve creative freedom. Through her impressive filmography and her humanitarian commitment, Emmanuelle Béart is forever supporting a filmmaking to be shared, to emancipate, transcend borders and help us live together. Baloji, in his first feature film with impressive aesthetic mastery, delivers a chronicle that transcends otherness through the prism of magical realism.

Delighted to be paired at the head of the Caméra d’or Jury, Baloji and Emmanuelle Béart will combine their voices to welcome the first features of filmmakers who look at the world with inspiration, tell us about it with emotion and invite us to discuss it with the conviction of beginnings. “Being a self-taught filmmaker and a filmmaker from the Congolese diaspora,” confides Baloji, “it’s a great honour to be able to witness the vitality of first-time directors, to discover their strong singularities and their inaugural work, which will have a lasting impact on the identity of their filmography.” Emmanuelle Béart declares: “A first film is about the impossibility of doing anything other than delving into the depths of one’s being to find out what we can’t keep quiet about. A deeply moving and terribly free birth: no one is waiting for you yet. We will honor our duty with wonder and respect.”

 

The Caméra d’or Jury has been co-chaired three times before: by actress Françoise Fabian and director Daniel Schmid in 1996, by Marthe Keller and Géraldine Chaplin in 2002, and by brothers Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne in 2006.

 

In 2023, the Caméra d’Or was awarded to Pham Thien An for Inside the Yellow Cocoon Shell  by the Jury presided over by French actress Anaïs Demoustier
