The inaugural Flying Robot international Film Festival took place last night at the Roxie Theater in San Francisco. As the festival director, I couldn’t be more pleased. We received 153 submissions representing 35 countries across 7 categories. We gave away over $10,000 in cash and prizes and we sold out our first screening. We had a number of awesome sponsors participating who donated drones and drone related prizes. A huge THANK YOU to all the filmmakers who submitted, the sponsors who donated, the volunteers who toiled away to make all the events a success and of course, everyone who showed up to be a part of history. This was historic and we certainly plan on being back next year.
Without further ado, here is the complete list of winning films and runner-ups as decided by the FRiFF panel of 15 judges. We will be in contact with all the winners about their prizes shortly.
