WELCOME to the
PEUGEOT DRONE FILM FESTIVAL 2017
The use of drones in combination with high-quality digital film cameras gives the filmmaker a completely new creative possibility at an extremely low cost. Together with its partners DJI and TOSKANA RESORT CASTELFALFI, PEUGEOT would like to dedicate a own festival to this new film genre in order to bring the development of this technology closer to filmmakers, to create an audience for these types of films and to show the use of modern film technology as a profit and a new opportunity for creatives.
From March 15, 2017, filmmakers and drone-pilots are able to send films as festival submission. The competition consists five categories and the winners will be selected by the jury under the direction of actress Marie Bäumer, camera-legend Gernot Roll, actress Lavinia Wilson and three directors of the German Directors Guild. In total 12 finalists will be invited to the Grand Final in CASTELFALFI, Tuscany in November 2017.
The grand final of the PEUGEOT DRONE FILM FESTIVAL will take place from 24 to 26 November in CASTELFALFI. There will be announced by the jury the winners of the categories and the Grand Prix of all submissions. All finalists will also receive a three-day intensive and creative training with the drone specialists of DJI and the jury.
The Grand Prix of the PEUGEOT DRONE FILM FESTIVAL is a six-week drone filming event - free of choice: the winner will get for six weeks two free PEUGEOT travelers including running costs, a DJI drone with extensive equipment and EURO 5,000 for travel costs.
