Films and Facts
The main purpose of the FullDome Festival is the presentation of new international fulldome films and applications within the three categories “Full-length Feature Shows”, “Short Films” and “Students Clips”. A core mission has always been to encourage students to stretch the envelope of what’s possible in the dome. The best contributions are awarded by criteria of treatment, technical implementation, artistic design, creativity, originality, narrative quality, entertainment value, and general contribution to the artistic, innovative and technical advancement of the fulldome medium. The FullDome Festival presents »JANUS« Award for excellence and creativity in fulldome productions since 2013.
The FullDome Festival awarded more than $40,000 prize money since 2007. It volunteered 752 events in total, from one-minute student clips to two-hour theatrical performances. Contributions have been submitted from 30 countries.
The festival began as a venture of committed volunteers. Growing international attention, a high degree of acceptance among experts, and bright prospects of development now make it necessary to replace sporadic and voluntary efforts with a continuous and systematic enterprise.
