The 6th Annual Robot Film Festival was in Los Angeles, CA on December 31, 2016.
This theme was Robots At Play. Robots that spark creativity, robots that ask you to serve them cocktails - robots as companions, partners and relationship thieves! There is a common perception that technology makes us efficient, but technology is a high-maintenance relationship, full of software updates and devices that need us to turn them off and on again. But for all it's trouble, technology is also joyful, playful and full of connection!
- 5-9pm, Hive Gallery, Downtown LA
This was a New Year's Eve pre-party for robot admirers and robot companions. Kicking off with our bots & booze reception, we screened 50 minutes of 2016 robot short films! Co-hosted by roboticist Heather Knight and chess-boxer Andrew McGregor, the night was full of gallivanting robot comedians and technology-based art.
