Robot Film Festival, San Francisco




After two evocative summers in NYC, the Robot Film Festival (RFF) is entering its third year of bringing artful, witty, and cutting-edge films to film and tech lovers like you! RFF is a pioneer in
investigating the human-machine relationship in front of the lens, particularly aiming to promote positive storytelling about robotics.

Doors open at 10:45am! We will hold this year’s festival at the studios of Bot & Dolly, a SF-based robotics studio and leader in robot control, interfaces, and development. The event is produced by
roboticists and engineers volunteering time, passion, and finely-crafted skill.

Enjoy eleven hours of robot films & festivities on Saturday July 20, culminating in the annual Botskers award ceremony, our own red carpet robot-Oscars! Then make your own robot film at the workshop on Sunday July 21! This year will be the first full festival in SF, harnessing
the region’s vibrant fusion of arts and technology.

Produced by Marek Michalowski, Heather Knight and Chrys Wu, hosted by Bot&Dolly!

    Alas! Alack! The grand convention of comics calls me to it. I must travel to the city of San Diego on a quest of nerdom. Forgive me, fair robots, I will miss your cold, hard presence. <3

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
