The 2nd Annual New York City Drone Film Festival will be held from March 4th – March 6th 2016. The three-day event will feature a dynamic slate of interactive panel discussions, guest speakers, screenings of nominated films and the annual awards ceremony. The festival will return to the Directors Guild of America Theater for the second year in a row.
“Just as drones have become more technically advanced and integrated into society, the NYC Drone Film Festival has experienced a year of tremendous growth,” said Festival Founder and Director Randy Scott Slavin. “We’ve expanded from a one-night event to a three-day happening. We’re holding interactive panels and seminars highlighting the influence of drones around the world. And we’ve expanded our award categories from nine to eleven. The 2016 festival is going to be bigger and bolder in every way.”
The NYCDFF is the world’s first event exclusively dedicated to celebrating the art of drone cinematography. In it’s inaugural year it received over 150 submissions from 19 countries. The event sold out in five days, attracted 31 sponsors across 10 different industries, including headline sponsor NBC News, and received over 270 million media impressions. The festival offers an international platform for filmmakers from every corner of the globe to exhibit their work in front of industry professionals and the drone cinema fan community.
