We were at the NYC Drone Film Festival last year and it was amazing to see the videos people create with drones. Especially when you watch them on a large cinema screen. This year is already the 5th NYC Drone Film Festival and it will be held at the Libert Science Center in NJ on March 1st and 2nd, 2019. Yes, that is this upcoming Friday and Saturday. So, if you are in the greater New York area be sure to stop by. Tickets can be bought online here.
