PEUGEOT Germany, DJI Europe, Jumeirah Frankfurt: Frontal was yesterday - today the world is seen from above thanks to multicopters.
At least since the legendary flight of video filmmaker Jos Stiglingh through fireworks in Miami in 2014, drone film has been a separate genre. The French automobile manufacturer PEUGEOT has been promoting film art for decades, always where the extraordinary happens. PEUGEOT does not support people because they are different - but because they show it and has therefore launched a unique drone film festival together with the world market leader in drones, DJI Europe and the impressive luxury hotel JUMEIRAH Frankfurt. All three brands have in common that they support people in impressing themselves and their environment.
The start of the submission phase for films is July 1st 2020 - Filmmakers from all over the world can then submit their films until April 30th 2021.
Participants can register for the competition until April 30, 2021, 6:00 p.m. After the online registration form has been completely filled out and the conditions of participation have been accepted, the film will be confirmed after an examination of the film. The registration data are only used to establish contact and communication between the participant and the PEUGEOT DRONE FILM FESTIVAL, they are treated with absolute confidentiality and are not passed on to third parties. The films must be made available on a video platform and there are two options for uploading the films:
Option 1: Upload the film to a VIMEO account and send the embed code / VIMEO film URL
Option 2: Upload the film to a YouTube account and send the embed code / YouTube film URL
The festival jury selects a "Top 50 Selection" from the entries. This will be presented on Focus.de on the occasion of the audience award, which is awarded by the readers of FOCUS Online. FOCUS ONLINE is read by 23.5 million unique visitors per month. In addition to the PEUGEOT DRONE FILM FESTIVAL Award, readers choose the FOCUS ONLINE DRONE AWARD audience award.
The 50 best are presented to a million audience at Focus.de.
A jury of DJI, PEUGEOT and JUMEIRAH will then select 12 finalists from the Top 50, who will be invited to the Grand Final in the 5-star luxury hotel JUMEIRAH Frankfurt. The winner will be chosen by a top-class jury of film and television actors and directors at a gala dinner.
The Grand Final - June 2021 at the 5-star JUMEIRAH HOTEL Frankfurt.
The jury includes the actresses Katja Riemann, Marie Bäumer, Lisa Maria Potthoff, the actors August Zirner, Matthias Brandt, Simon Schwarz and the director and multiple Grimme award winner Stephan Wagner.
