See the 3rd Annual NYC Drone Film Festival nominees

You saw the best drone photos of 2016. Now get ready for the best drone videos of 2016.
Nominations have been announced for the 3rd Annual New York City Drone Film Festival, the world’s first and largest film festival dedicated to works filmed by drones.
“(The films) take us to far-away places, examine social issues like climate change and the Dakota Pipeline, and riff on pop culture,” said Randy Scott Slavin, founder and festival director. “One of them even features a team of drones making a cake. With films originating everywhere from the ocean to the desert to the skate park, the 2017 festival is our most diverse one yet.”

The festival will be held March 17-19, 2017 at the Skirball Center for the Performing Arts and the Liberty Science Center.  The Best in Show winner at the 2017 New York City Drone Film Festival will receive $75,000 worth of camera and drone gear from Freefly and RED.

  1. I’ve always been suspicious of these types of ‘film festivals’, especially as they’re usually just some kind of online competition with no physical location like regular festivals. I think this one is better than the others though?
