84 minutes/US/English / Feature Documentary/Science & Technology/Robotics
Director: Joey Daoud*

CONVENTION PREMIERE / Filmed in Florida 
ABOUT THE FILM:     BOTS HIGH is an exciting documentary following the adventures of three high school robotics teams battling for first place at the national robotics competition in Miami, Florida. It’s a no-holds-barred fight to the death with robot carnage everywhere you look.
Genius inventor Will builds robots so powerful they’re unstoppable… if only they don’t destroy themselves first. The Mechanical Misfits are an all girls team stumbling through their first foray into combat robotics and Elizabeth and Danielle are a formidable pair looking to reign supreme during their last year of high school.     Bots High follows these students as they design, build and compete at Nationals – all while surviving high school, first love and teenage procrastination.  Source: botshigh.com
ABOUT THE DIRECTOR:      Joey Daoud is a documentary director and producer from Miami Beach, Florida. His latest project is the feature length documentary BOTS HIGH, which takes an exciting look behind the scenes of high school robot creators and the spectacular end to their robots.      Other past projects incorporate Daoud’s fascination in examining often overlooked areas, from super-productive workers in his short documentary YOU 2.0 to a detailed look at cubicles. Despite producing them as school projects while earning a degree in Motion Picture, Television, and Recording Arts at Florida State University, the projects generated international press and viral status on some of the most highly trafficked blogs. Daoud also produced segments for PBS and documented villages in Haiti.      When not filming real life, Daoud can be found reading a printed copy of the Sunday New York Times or looking for geocaches.  Source: botshigh.com
