Open Air Venue

The square in front of the National Theatre “Ivan Vazov” in Sofia, Bulgaria will host the third edition of the festival.

Creativity and Drones

Two nights of excitement

DroneUp 2017 was full of emotions,
amazing drone films from over 30 countries
and inspiring atmosphere!

The 5000+ people who visited DroneUp 2017
experienced the best of the world’s aerial cinematography
on an open air large silver screen in Plovdiv’s amazing
heritage Roman Stadium.

Vertical screen

The live audience also witnessed the first ever
vertical drone theatre and relaxed under the stars,
while flying across the world with the DroneUp finalists
’ films at the special DroneUp &Down festival area.

We had the privilege of presenting a two-day daytime program,
that welcomed 1000+ into the drone world, giving them a chance
to experience the thrill of flying a drone through demos,
workshops, expos, and competitions.

This is one of the top Drone Film Festivals that exist. Two nights of stellar films and performances in a one-of-a-kind venue.
Can’t wait to see what they do next year!
