Is this the world’s first Robot Film Festival? I think so! The deadline to submit a film is June 5th. So if you have a robot and a video camera, now is your robot’s chance to walk (or roll) down the red carpet in New York City!

Please submit your outstanding, dazzling, hilarious or thought-provoking short film. Just one requirement: Please feature a robot as one of the main characters as or framing devices of the narrative. Films should be one to eight minutes long. The Robot Film Festival was founded by roboticist Heather Knight of Marilyn Monrobot to inject a sense of playfulness into traditional science and engineering and explore new frontiers for robotics before the technology is even possible.
