Blue2Blue Drone Festival is back & bigger than ever in 2018

Blue2Blue is Australia’s first drone film festival and attracts a lot of talented entrants from around the globe.
As hosted by Blue2Blue and sponsored by UAVAIR; we’d like to welcome you to submit your entry into this fantastic competition.

This is an experience that will take you from one country to the next from the comfort of your seat.

Here’s a trailer from last years turnout:

At UAVAIR, we believe having a platform to showcase drone footage and the unique shots it can bring to the film industry is something to be celebrated. The 2017 Blue2Blue Drone Film Festival was a fantastic celebration of drones and the unique and breathtaking shots that can be captured using remotely piloted aircraft systems.

Many of the 2017 applicants presented quality films that left the audience allured. We are sure 2018 will hold much of the same as this years event and we are very excited to see the films that are currently being submitted for next year’s competition. We also encourage our graduates to enter into the competition as we are a strong believer in celebrating this expanding industry.

Ashley Cox, UAVAIR’S General Manager whom was given the opportunity to judge the Best Cinematographer Award, found it extremely difficult to select a winner. “It was a challenge to select the winner of this category, there was a lot of skilled and creative submissions, I also looked for quality drone piloting”.

As a result, Scott Palmer from Western Australia, won the Best Cinematographer Award. His enchanting film, ‘South Coast’, depicted the soothing vibes of the South Coast of WA, Australia. Congratulations to Scott on taking our UAVAIR’s sponsorship category. Scott won a UAVAIR’s training course, Certificate III in Aviation (Remote Pilot – Visual Line of Sight), to the value of $3995.
