We always welcome film submissions for upcoming festivals, particularly those that explore positive storytelling about robots!
The Robot Film Festival is an annual celebration of robots on screen and in performance. The event features screenings of invited films and juried selections from open-call submissions, live performances by robot entertainers, and a red-carpet awards ceremony.
The first and only event of its kind, the Robot Film Festival was founded in 2011 to inject both artistry and playfulness into traditional robotic engineering and to explore the frontiers of the human-machine relationship. Bi-coastal and in its eighth year, the Festival is more than an annual event—through its online video archives and traveling screenings at select venues around the country, the team behind the Robot Film Festival is nurturing a community of creatives and engineers who explore, document, and invent the imaginative world of robotics.
