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

NO AR Drone Film Fest Brazil welcomes filmmakers and cinema enthusiasts to a celebration of the art of aerial cinematography!
Now reaching Year III.

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.
Filmmakers are invited to submit amazing drone shorts.

Highly-recognized professionals from media industries, as well as scholars, compose the Judging Panel.

Palácio das Artes, an iconic art venue signed by Brazil’s foremost architect Oscar Niemeyer, located right at the heart of Belo Horizonte, is the regular host of NO AR Brazil. Cine Humberto Mauro, a four-decade cinema within the palace, dedicates one day to screen on DCP quality the best drone films of the year.
