Event Date
NO AR International Drone Film Fest Brazil welcomes filmmakers to a celebration of aerial cinematography.

Thanks to the popularization of camera-mounted drones, independent filmmakers can now reach quality levels of mainstream productions.
A whole new path in the art of cinema is yet to be explored!

NO AR will showcase and award artists who have mastered this new technique to create breath-taking scenes and emotion.

Latin America's first drone film festival offers free submission fee for early applicants. We love the fact that drones are cinema-grade quality delivered at accessible cost.

Recognized professionals from film, photography and music industries, as well as established drone filmmakers, will compose the Judging Team.

A live screening with 2018 edition winners will take place in the district of Milho Verde, a Brazilian colonial era village surrounded by mountains of Serra do Espinhaço, as part of the 18th annually-held Encontro Cultural de Milho Verde program.

NO AR is presented by TICO TICO TV, nature aerial films and educational content producer, with works recognized by institutions such as the Brazilian Ministry of Tourism or ICMBio (National Parks Management), as well as by international film festivals.
