Submissions open May 1! The 3rd Annual festival will be July 20, 2013 in San Francisco at AutoFuss. We are alternating coasts. Last year's Robot Film Festival took place July 14, 2012 at 3LD Art & Technology Center in NYC! Get a taste with previous years' BOTSKER AWARDS and VIDEO GALLERIES.
A full day celebration of robots on film, last year's festival opened with a screening of ROBOT & FRANK, featuring Frank Lagella and Liv Tyler, juried screenings and live performances. Previous performers include Reggie Watts, Josh Ventura, Stormy Leather, Robot Cowboy, Double Rainbow and Jilted. The official awards ceremony of the Robot Film Festival, the "Botskers," honors the winners in a black tie, red carpet gala.
We encourage filmmakers to explore frontiers before technically feasible and investigate humanity, machinery and the larger symbolisms within. The RFF was founded by Heather Knight of Marilyn Monrobot and co-organized by Marek Michalowski and Chrys Wu.
