The Flying Robot international Film Festival returns to San Francisco's Roxie Theater on November 17th for the world premiere screening of the 2016 FRiFF drone shorts program. Join us for a delightful evening of the planet's most incredible short drone films.
FRiFF received 180 submissions from over 40 countries across 8 categories this year.
A couple dozen of the best as selected by the FRiFF jury will be shown. The world premiere screening will be followed by a short awards ceremony honoring the best selections in each category, hosted by the Internet's Justin Hall.
Details and tickets can be found on the Flying Robot site here.
Please join us in San Francisco on November 19th from 11am-7pm for the first ever Flying Robot Aerial Imagery Day, part of the 2016 Flying Robot international Film Festival. The day will be chock-full of presentations, demos and workshops focused on various aspects of drone-based aerial imagery. Whether you're brand new to aerial photography or you're a master flying pixel tamer, there's something here for everyone.
Subject areas include aerial photography, cinematography, 3d mapping/photogrammetry, color grading, 360 & panoramic aerial photography, FPV systems, live streaming and drone building 101... to name a few.
This event will be a lightly structured day of fun and learning. We will provide a stage for presentations, an enclosed drone cage for demos and breakout areas for workshops. If you have an aerial imagery project or presentation you would like to share, please drop us a line. We'd love to hear from you!
