Boing Boing pal and drone videographer Eddie Codel, creator of this stunner above of the Port of Oakland, launched the Flying Robot international Film Festival and is calling for entries! Eddie says:
The Flying Robot international Film Festival or FRiFF, is an open competitive film festival focused on aerial cinema created from the perspective of flying cameras, aka drones. Festival participation is open to anyone from around the globe. Drones, cameras and accessories will be awarded as prizes for winners in each of the 6 categories, as well as a "best of show" winner. Entry fees are $5-10, except the Student Film category, which is free.
Submissions are being accepted until the September 15th deadline. A panel of esteemed judges from beyond the Internet will select the winning films. Finalist and winning films will be screened live at a theater this November in San Francisco.
