About The Festival
Started in 2020, the Southern California Drone Film Festival celebrates the best of drone cinematography, photography, and content creation. The International festival allows filmmakers, photographers, 360-video makers, and content creators from all over to showcase their work to the world.
The Festival is held in conjunction with the FAA’s Droning On event, showcasing education and training of drones.
We are committed to supporting and celebrating creative, inspiring, and compelling content as well as all visionaries, and everything drone!
