The 2017 London Drone Film Festival was created to showcase the incredible work being done by filmmakers from around the world using this technology.
We have expanded this year to include the Madrid Drone Film Festival

Contestants can enter into one or both events. To enter into both events choose the category of your choice and the London Drone Film Festival + Madrid Drone Film Festival option. There is a discount for entering both events at the same time.

We believe that this technology has the potential to radically change the filming industry and enable filmmakers and creatives to create work that previously would have been impossible or impractical to produce. Founded by Filmmaker and former Software Engineer Owen James. "We are excited about the future of Aerial Cinematography, as the interaction between software and more advanced sensor technology increases, what we see today in drone technology today will be just the tip of the iceberg"

Overall Rating
  • Two of my entries were selected but they never contacted me. They never update any social media status. For me it was a waste of time and money.
