The 4th annual Robot Film Festival, now in its fourth year, acknowledges robots in film. The festival will be presented on July 19th, 2014 at Bot & Dolly studios in San Francisco. This year's theme is “Telepresence & Identity: Human-Machine Integration.” Tickets can be purchased online at Eventbrite. From their promotional literature,
"The Robot Film Festival is an annual celebration of robots on screen and in performance. The event features screenings of invited films and juried selections from open-call submissions, live performances by robot entertainers, and a red-carpet awards ceremony.
The first and only event of its kind, the Robot Film Festival was founded in 2011 to inject both artistry and playfulness into traditional robotic engineering and to explore the frontiers of the human-machine relationship."
