The international Jena FullDome Festival is independent and open to contributors from all around the world. The purpose of the Jena FullDome Festival is to showcase recent fulldome productions and to provide an open platform to promote the art, the business and the future of fulldome. Visitors to the 1oth Festival will watch and assess international fulldome shows, meet professional, student and independent producers and participate in hands-on workshops, making-of sessions, presentations and expert talks.
Our Festival motto in 2016: »Frameless Frenzy«
Remember the paleolithic era? That’s when we artists and audiences alike were surrounded by works of visual wonder. Crawling or dancing through cavernous spaces, we were ready to lose our sense of direction while being lured to and by strange and beautiful sights and sounds; stars, birds and buffaloes above and below, to the right and to the left, all alive in a ghostly manner. The age of immersive paintings in rough and dripping caves was the primordial heyday of Frameless Frenzy! Then came the dark ages. This was a time of caged images – a time of broadening distance between vision and viewer: the frame age! Today, media consumers and producers are still hypnotized by the frame, believing that flat rectangular screens are a primary legitimate format for visual display of any kind. Part of the hypnosis is a failure in discovering the change that has come with 360-degree immersive spaces, from digital Planetariums to fulldome theatres and the integration of virtual reality devices. This news won’t be kept in the dark from for long: We are at the brink of an iconic shift from frame to sphere. 360 degree audio visual entertainment is a fertile medium for discovery beyond old restrictions. The producers and creators of fulldome experiences are ready to break the frame.
Save the date as we celebrate »Frameless Frenzy« and continue to showcase pioneering works at the 10th FullDome Festival May 26 – 28, 2016 at the Zeiss-Planetarium Jena.
