I've said this before, but if you want to watch the real-time evolution of a technology, do yourself a favor and check out a drone film festival.
No longer solely the purview of landscape shooters and EDM enthusiasts, drone cinema, filmmaking, and storytelling takes massive leaps forward every few months. And so we're pleased to announce the New York City Drone Film Festival, where you can see the latest and greatest in the genre. Watching these films on the big screen is the closest I've ever felt to flying.
Motherboard partnered with NYCDFF late last year for its first Los Angeles event, and the New York festival promises to be its largest yet. The fourth-annual festival is March 3 at the BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center, with a "Day of Drones" at the Liberty Science Center the next day. If you're in town, come out and say hey.
