The 6th Annual Robot Film Festival will be in Los Angeles, CA!

This is a New Year's Eve pre-party for robot admirers and robot companions. **YOU MUST RSVP TO ATTEND**

The theme is Robots At Play. Robots that spark creativity, robots that ask you to serve them cocktails - robots as companions, partners and relationship thieves! There is a common perception that technology makes us efficient, but technology is a high-maintenance relationship, full of software updates and devices that need us to turn them off and on again. But for all it's trouble, technology is also joyful, playful and full of connection!

So come play with us!


  • 5:00 pm - Bots & Booze Reception
  • 6:00 pm - Robot Comedy Performance
  • 7:30 pm - Short Film Screenings
  • 9:00 pm - Head to New Years Party

Co-hosted by roboticist Heather Knight and chessboxer Andrew McGregor, the night will be full of gallivanting, robot comedians and technology-based art.

The Robot Film Festival aims to nurture a vibrant interdisciplinary community of creatives and technologists in an ongoing conversation about our developing relationships with machines. Founded in 2011 by roboticist Heather Knight, this year's event is produced by Marilyn Monrobot and Andrew McGegor.
