The #NYCDFF is the world's first event exclusively dedicated to celebrating the art of drone cinematography. 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 community.
The #NYCDFF has experienced rapid growth since its inception in 2014, counting companies like GE, NBC News, Adobe and DJI as headline sponsors. In 2016 the second annual #NYCDFF was a 3-day event including a dynamic slate of interactive panels and a "Day of Drones"hosted at the Liberty Science Center which included drone battling and FPV drone racing. The event sold out in 6 hours, received 350 film submissions from 45 countries, saw 5,000+ people in attendance over the festival weekend and earned over 350 million media impressions worldwide.
Our team is already hard at work to make the #NYCDFF 3 the best one yet. We have our work cut out for us.
