The 1st Ever Camera Drone Film Festival Is Here

On Nov. 19, San Francisco will welcome the first-ever Flying Robot Film Festival, a competition featuring the best of footage captured by unmanned flying cameras.

The Flying Robot international Film Festival is an open competitive film festival focused on aerial cinema created from the perspective of flying cameras, also commonly known as drones. Festival participation is open to anyone around the globe. Entry fees are low. Prizes worth thousands of dollars will be awarded to winning selections. Deadline for submissions is September 15, 2015.

The contest is open to anyone in the world, and submissions are being sorted into six categories: Cinematic, Aerial Sports, Drones for good (how the aircraft can benefit people), I Made That! (homemade, DIY drones) LOL WTF (self-explanatory) and Student Films.


Want to submit your drone films?  Here’s how… They are looking for films shot from the perspective of a flying camera that tell a story. Judges will shine favorably upon films with a good story. Your film does not need to exclusively contain aerial footage. It can actually be more compelling if it doesn’t and your submitted film must be less than 5 minutes in length.

There is a submission fee of $5 per film, before the regular deadline. The fee rises to $10 until the late deadline. The only exception to this is the Student Film category, which is FREE to submit until the regular deadline. $10 after. Only one film may be submitted per director for the Student Film category, so send us your best work!

Deadlines are as follows:

  • September 15, 2015 – Regular deadline – $5 entry fee
  • October 15, 2015 – Late deadline – $10 entry fee
