Dome Under Festival 2020

The Melbourne Planetarium is excited to announce the Dome Under Festival, the first-ever Fulldome Film Festival in Australia. The festival will take place at the Melbourne Planetarium, February 8-9, 2020.

If you have never visited Australia here is a wonderful reason to come 'down under' and escape the chill of the Northern Hemisphere winter.  February in Melbourne is sunny and hot.

The two-day film festival will showcase recent fulldome productions from around the world to an audience comprising planetarium professionals, fulldome filmmakers and the public. This Festival will be a celebration of the fulldome film format and it will promote the medium to a wider audience. The Festival is independent and open to contributions from all around the world.

Filmmakers, producers and distributors may apply to present full-length feature shows or short films (including student works). All films entered into the Festival must have been completed on or after 1 January 2019 to be eligible for entry into the festival.

A festival jury will award the following prizes:

  • Best Astronomy Education
  • Best Narrative
  • Best Experimental
  • Best Short
  • Best Student Work
