Drones film festival takes off

The New York City Drone Film Festival opens on 5 March at the Directors Guild of America Theatre in New York.

It is the world's first event exclusively showing short movies filmed with drones. This is the second edition of the event, created by Randi Scott Lavin.

Lavin, who is a drone photography enthusiast, created a viral video of aerial views of New York in 2014.

After realising that there was no festival where he could submit his short, he decided to start a festival exclusively dedicated to drone photography.
