Lights, camera, action at the Robot Film Festival

July 23, 2014


Bringing together people and robots for an amazing social event, the 4th annual Robot Film Festival was held on Saturday July 19 at Bot & Dolly studio in San Francisco. The Festival opened with the first US screening of Japanese feature film Hinokio, the story of a boy who attends school by telepresence robot. Hinokio is a touching and complex movie that, in my opinion, explores human-robot interaction even more thoroughly than Robot and Frank. Now if you just want to skip to the Botsker awards there’s a full list at the end, but if you missed the festival, the tweet stream from @robotfilmfest is almost as good as really being there.
