We provide an open platform for electronic arts, science, business, immersive media and the future of fulldome. We are 360-degree independent and open to visual artists, VJs, 3D-sound pioneers and contributors from all around the world.

Our mission is to praise the dome and finding the future of the medium.

JANUS AWARD

The fulldome festival honors outstanding work with the Janus-Award. Janus has two faces, so he can see the full dome. He is the perfect judge and guardian of the FullDome Festival. We don’t see the festival as a competition, because we are a network and a melting pot for the whole scene. But we also want to honor special films and support new talents.

AWARD CATEGORIES

Student Award (5 minutes clips with fulldome content)

Short Film Award (15 minutes clips with fulldome content)

Full Feature Award (60 minutes movies with fulldome content)

Special (Award for innovative fulldome movies.)

Spatial Sound Award (Sound-Arts)

LOCATION

We are really happy that the worlds longest serving planetarium is our host. The Planetarium Jena is full of innovation so it fits perfect with our point of view.

The Zeiss Planetarium Jena opened the doors to the public on July 18, 1926. It owes its origin to an idea by the founder of the German Museum in Munich, Oskar von Miller, as early of 1912. The construction of the 25 meter dome in Jena, based on the designs of the architects Schreiter & Schlag, began in the end of 1924. In 1926 the era of large planetariums began with Wuppertal-Barmen, Leipzig and Düsseldorf; Jena followed as number four worldwide. After the destruction during the Second World War, the Zeiss Planetarium Jena remained as the world’s oldest large planetarium.
