Robotic Online Short Film Festival (or ROS festival) is a science fiction short film festival planning to focus on robotics related themes.
We want to create a new space for dialogue between art, science and technology through audiovisual media and around the figure of the robot. The online festival provides a good scenario for promoting social reflection, creativity and artistic work around new realities, as well as opportunities and dangers posed by the technological convergence in which we are immersed.
