We were a bit too late last year to warn you about the first worldwide Robot film Festival, but not for this, their second edition.
Submissions for next summers Film Fest competition are now open (pretty much for half a year as the deadline is June 7th and this year’s edition will take place July 13-14th), and just like in 2011 the only big requirement is to feature a robot as one of the main characters as or framing devices of the narrative.
Hopefully we’ll find this year as many film types… animation, comedy, harsh drama, love stories, feature films… all for the sake of Robots, celebrate their incipient superiority and honor them so maybe they forgive our lives in the coming decades when they take over humanity.
As you can see from the couple of videos above anyone can submit a film, you don’t have to be a VFX expert or a master sci-fi writter, but creativity will certainly help you bringing a Botsker back home, just like last years winners.
A $20 fee, an upload to vimeo and you’re pretty much set to participate. Unfortunately there are no monetary prizes (booooooooo, we honestly expected some financial reward for this second edition) but you may be entitled to a ceremony invitation and a botsker. More details to come shortly, precise info on their page.
