[NYC] July 16-17: The Robot Film Festival

Taking place in New York City July 16-17, 2011, The Robot Film Festival will showcase and premiere short films that are one to eight minutes in length that feature robots as main characters in a variety of categories including dramas, comedies, love stories, action adventures and animation.

It will feature screenings of juried selections from open-call submissions, live performances by robot entertainers, technology and art installations, cocktail and coffee mixers, a black-tie cocktail party and red-carpet awards ceremony, The Botskers, a film-making workshop, and a Sunday afternoon robot-themed cookout, dubbed the BotBQ.

The Robot Film Festival was founded by roboticist Heather Knight of Marilyn Monrobot and Carnegie Mellon’s Robotics Institute. This 2-day festival takes place at the Three Legged Dog theatre in lower Manhattan and opens July 16 with a screening of Spike Jonze’s film short ‘I’m Here’, a robot love story celebrating a life enriched by creativity.
