For the 18th time, we are opening the doors of the world's oldest planetarium to host the international FullDome Festival from May 23-26, 2024. The FullDome Festival shows the best 360-degree films produced in the past year. The films are created by professional producers, young talents and innovative artists. Some of them celebrate their world premiere. The films are curated and judged by an international jury.

The best productions are honored with the JANUS Awards, the "Oscar" of the fulldome scene. In addition to the fulldome films, the program also includes the Frameless Forum presentations, featuring innovations from the fields of fulldome and immersive media, electronic art, virtual reality and augmented reality.

The curated IPS Special FullDome Festival for delegates of the International Planetarium Society IPS conference follows a few months after the regular festival. Because the projection planetarium was developed 100 years ago in Jena, the IPS Meeting 2024 will take place first in Jena, then migrate to Berlin.

As part of the IPS conference, the winners of this year's JANUS Awards will be announced on July 19, 2024 at 7 p.m. in the Zeiss Planetarium Jena.

The 2024 program is still in progress.
