Today is the first day of the 4th edition of the annual, New York City Drone Film Festival. The event takes place over two days and This afternoon started with different panel sessions on drone tech, drone laws and creativity in drone filmmaking. Now we are in the evening part of the program and also the most exciting part of the event. More than 300 drone filmmakers from more than 50 countries had submitted their entries and to say that I’m impressed is an understatement. The drone films are amazing to watch as it the creativity and skill of the filmmakers.
