The #BestOfEarth program is an exciting highlight of the 15. FullDome Festival, but it’s not the only one. Expect a lively program in Jena of immersive live shows and fulldome master pieces. Stay tuned for details and updates!
The FullDome Festival provides an open platform to present and praise immersive media, electronic arts, science, business and the exploration of fun and future in full dome. We invite media artists, Planetarium people, science and music visualizers, interdisciplinary researchers, dome VJs, 360° performers, spatial sound creators and pioneers of immersive technologies from all around the world to show their work and share their ideas. Live and surround, beyond the flat frame paradigm.
The Festival is produced by the Fulldome Festival Foundation, a non-profit, 360° independent foundation based in Jena, the vibrant city of science and light where modern Planetarium technology was invented a hundred years ago.
The FullDome Festival honors outstanding work with the Janus-Award. The double-faced Roman god Janus was chosen as our patron saint because he sees front and rear, past and future simultaneously. No one is better equipped to bless the best in the network of immersive media reaching for the stars.
