Fulldome – 3D in der Kuppel

Fulldome - 3D in the Dome

Thailand, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Spain, USA, France, 2019/2020, 55 Min

Fulldome film screenings in the planetarium combine the viewing experience of the 3D format with the uniqueness of going to the cinema: immersive cinema in a public space. Going beyond the scientific didactic film, fulldome filmmakers sound out the possibilities of a cinematic genre that has made a significant contribution to the development of current VR formats. Without the need for 3D glasses a shared cinema experience is guaranteed. Here myths build up into stories, whilst geometric shapes, pixels and psychedelic variations expand the viewer's consciousness, at times meditatively, at others at break-neck speed. The interplay of shapes and colours increasingly incorporates ever more playful and narrative moments, allowing filmmakers to comment on the visions and limitations of the global community.

This year the programme, which runs on November 5th and 6th in Cottbus Planetarium, was put together by the FullDome Festival Jena. The leading German fulldome festival, it showcases current productions from all over the globe and discusses technical innovations and their influence on artistic narrative forms. Due to Covid-19, this year's 14th edition 2020 will take place in two parts, with the second due to run between November 20th and 22nd. (for further information see:
