Too much drone footage is never enough.

The second edition of the New York City Drone Film Festival took place in March and showcased some of the most stunning films shot entirely by drones. The rise in consumer grade drones and it’s use in film making has resulted in some interesting progress in the way films are shot and the point of view provided. They also tend to be much more cost efficient and easier to manage and use in hard to access locations. We can see these machines put to use in this montage released by the film festival including action shots, landscapes, architecture and even glimpses of the drones themselves.

The NYCDFF is the world’s first event exclusively dedicated to celebrating the art of drone cinematography. The festival offers an international platform for filmmakers from every corner of the globe to exhibit their work in front of industry professionals and the drone community.

Since its inception in 2014, it has only grown in size as a 3 day event including a dynamic slate of interactive panels and a “Day of Drones” hosted at the Liberty Science Center which included drone battling and FPV drone racing. The event sold out in 6 hours, received 350 film submissions from 45 countries, saw 5,000+ people in attendance over the festival weekend and earned over 350 million media impressions worldwide.
