A new film festival highlighting creative content made by aerial filmmakers is set to debut in in Southern California this March. The inaugural Southern California Drone Film Festival is set for March 6, 2021 and marks the only event of its kind in California. The one-day virtual event will include panels on drone technology, cinematography, and video production, and will culminate with the awards ceremony highlighting shorts from creative storytellers.
As with most public events, the festival is being held remotely in a virtual environment. In addition to showcasing the finalists and announcing the winners of the 14 categories, the festival will provide videos of interviews with filmmakers, photographers, journalists, drone professionals and many more. There will also be some training videos, as well as an exclusive screening of a new documentary on the first-person view (FPV) drone craze. As a professor, Seidel said the festival looks to encourage education as well as expanding creativity.
Tickets are only $25 for a month access to the content. The Southern California Drone Film Festival showcases the best and most creative content captured by drones by aspiring and professional filmmakers from around the world.
