DRONE FOCUS FILM FESTIVAL

EXPERIENCE THE FILM FESTIVAL AND CONFERENCE AS ONE.

The Drone Focus Film Festival made its original debut at Drone Focus Conference 2017 with submissions from across the globe. Rather than creating a separate event just for the film festival, our team integrates the films into the entire conference experience. Winners are announced on mainstage during the event in front of all of the attendees making the celebration front and center.

The focus of the Drone Focus Film Festival is on the application and end-product of the drone user in a competitive, creative atmosphere. All submitted films will be judged and the winners will receive cash and/or in-kind prizes. The Drone Focus Film Festival is looking foster the growth of the drones and UAS industry by bringing together multiple mediums and industries. Through the film festival, our hope is to empower the future of UAS technology and bring awareness to the surrounding communities.

HOW IT WORKS

  1. Filmmakers from across the globe submit their films to one or more of our six categories.

  2. A panel of judges will evaluate all the submissions and select the top 3 submissions within each of the six categories. The Filmmakers of the top 3 submissions will be notified.

  3. From the top 3 within each of the six categories, a finalist will be selected.

  4. The finalist within each category will be announced on-stage at Drone Focus Conference on May 29-30, 2019.
