Drone filmmaking pioneer (and Boing Boing Video contributor!) Eddie Codel shares word on his Flying Robot International Film Festival and a fun day of workshops and demos on aerial imagery!

Event #1

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.

Event #2

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.
