First IMERSA Day at the FullDome Festival: May 27, 2018
“IMERSA Day” during the 12th FullDome Festival discusses ways of cooperation in the creation and marketing of fulldome productions on May 27, 2018 at the Zeiss-Planetarium Jena
27 February 2018. The number of planetariums and dome theatres with digital projection technology has grown rapidly worldwide in recent years. With digital technology, requirements for production and marketing of full dome presentations have also changed. Topics, demands and development opportunities of the 360-degree immersive medium are discussed and evaluated at various occasions and levels. IMERSA (Immersive Media Entertainment, Research, Science & Arts), based in the USA, fosters the growing interest in digital full dome cinema, immersive entertainment, performance art and virtual experiences. The FullDome Festival in Germany offers a platform for all current professional, independent and student works, characterized by innovation and inspiration.
IMERSA and FullDome Festival want to support their respective activities and combine networks in order to strengthen and streamline their agenda and discuss effective strategies for creative productions and future-oriented marketing. For the first time in its 12 year history, the Jena FullDome Festival will be hosting an “IMERSA Day” in conjunction with the Festival at the Zeiss Planetarium in Jena on May 27, 2018. The development in technology, production and distribution will be discussed by international representatives of the fulldome community. Both organisations, IMERSA and Full Dome Festival, hope to increase the involvement of European partners to the benefit of all parties.
