Robot Film Festival - July 14, 2012 - NYC
Saturday, July 14, 2012 from 10:30 AM to 10:00 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
This is not your ordinary film festival. The brainchild of Heather Knight, founder of Marilyn Monrobot, the Robot Film Festival is July 14, 2012 at Three Legged Dog theatre in lower Manhattan. Co-organized by Marek Michalowski and Chrys Wu, it aims to create an interdisciplinary community that lives on after the event, thus, the days are structured more like a TED event than a traditional film festival and attendees are encouraged to block out the whole day.
This year's theme: "Are robots man's new best friend?"
The Saturday events will open with a screening of ROBOT & FRANK, starring Frank Lagella and Liv Tyler, followed by juried screenings selected from 40+ nominated robot shortfilms and live performances by robot entertainers! In the evening, the official awards ceremony of the Robot Film Festival, the "Botskers," will honor the winners in a black tie, red carpet gala. Don't forget your party shoes! Or wheels!

10:30 am – Doors
