ROS Film Festival will celebrate its second anniversary in 2018. With this new edition, the Festival expects to expand its horizons even further if possible and establish itself as one of the top referents of science fiction and robotic cinema worldwide.
On January 2, and until June 30, 2018, we will open the registration period to receive the new short films that will be eligible for competition. In July, the winners of the awards will be decided within a conference devoted to film, communication and robotics. The event will take place in Las Naves (Valencia, Spain), and will bring together great professionals from the fields of film and technology.
The award ceremony will be held in October in Madrid, within the IROS 2018, the largest international meeting of robots and intelligent systems and one of our main contributors.
We start a new journey with great enthusiasm, preceded by the success of the first edition and guided by the goals that have inspired us from the very beginning.
ROS Film Festival – I Edition
The Robotic Online Short Film Festival (ROS Film Festival) was born in 2016 as the first robotic online short film festival and with the aim of becoming a reference online festival. The first edition was a great success, 56 short films from 16 different countries were submitted. Finally, a total of 50 works took part in the contest, all with a point in common, that one of the actors appearing in the short films was a robot. The participating short films were included in one of the two categories of the Festival: Fictional Robots and Real Robots.
In 2017 we decided the awards within two days of conferences in which we brought together great professionals from the film industry and the fields of communication, science and robotics.
