The London Drone Film Festival (LDFF) is coming to the city’s Institute of Contemporary Arts on Monday, May 23.
The LDFF, showcasing drone-captured work from filmmakers around the world, will include 10 categories of competition.
All entries should be no longer than five minutes in length and have more than 50% of the footage shot using a drone. Twenty percent of the profits for the festival will be donated to Cancer Research U.K., according to the show organizers.
Owen James, founder of the festival, says, “The future of aerial cinematography is really exciting, and the first London Drone Film Festival is a great way to both showcase and celebrate the amazing work already being created. Drones have enabled filmmakers to be bolder with filming locations and shot choices, and as technology advances, what we see today is just the tip of the iceberg.”
The festival says it has received over 170 submissions from 45 countries.
