U.S. Drone Film Festival
The inaugural U.S. Drone Film Festival is scheduled for April 30 at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. The festival will feature TED style talks on commercial, recreational, and philanthropic uses of drones, and a film festival. Drone enthusiasts from 44 countries submitted 183 shorts films to the festival in its inaugural year.
“The U.S. Drone Film Festival is a platform where attendees will have opportunity to listen to experts, learn about the many benefits of unmanned air vehicles and enjoy the outstanding short films taken by drones! ” said Ersin Demirci, the founder of the festival and a PhD candidate in Aviation and Space Sciences at Oklahoma State University. “Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS, also known as Drones) represent the fastest growth area in the aviation industry today. UAS have tremendous benefits to consumers in many practical and promising ways such as aerial photography, precision agriculture, disaster management, consumer delivery, gas pipeline and oil rig inspections.”
The mission of the U.S. Drone Film Festival is to promote, encourage, and celebrate the economic, environmental benefits of small UAVs and overcome the negative stigma associated with drones.
The festival will be held at Oklahoma City Museum of Arts on April 30, 2016 and tickets can be purchased at www.usdronefilmfestival.com
