About the festival

The third edition of the festival will take place in the capital city of Bulgaria – Sofia, on September 7th & 8th 2018. Sofia is the biggest city in Bulgaria and one of the greatest cultural places in the country.

The hosting venue for the two-day event and also our guests is the Ivan Vazov National Theatre square. Located at the heart of the city, the location is among the most popular in the city. It can be easily accessed by any kind of public transportation. Serdica metro station is the closest one to the event’s location.

In 2018 the DroneUp International Film Festival promises to go above and beyond after the great success of its previous editions. More drone demos, lively discussions, and entertainment throughout the day are only a few things we’ve planned for you.
