▪ Welcome aboard Latin America's first drone film festival ▪

NO AR International Drone Film Fest Brazil welcomes filmmakers and cinema enthusiasts to a celebration of aerial cinematography.

Thanks to the popularization of camera-mounted drones, independent filmmakers can now reach quality levels of mainstream productions. 
A whole new path in the art of cinema is yet to be explored!

NO AR Brazil showcases and awards artists who have mastered this new technique to create breath-taking scenes and emotion.

Highly-recognized professionals from film and photography industries, as well as established drone filmmakers, compose the Judging Panel.

A live screening with 2018 edition winners - where the overall winner has ben selected - took place in the district of Milho Verde, a Brazilian colonial era village surrounded by mountains of Serra do Espinhaço, as part of the 18th annually-held Encontro Cultural de Milho Verde program.

Now, NO AR Brazil is open for 2019 edition entries.
Drone filmmakers are invited to create and submit amazing drone shorts!

We are partners of the World Film Fair, with 2018 edition in NYC and 2019 events scheduled to London, Madrid and Hong Kong.
