Macon Film Festival: Fulldome Call for Submissions

The Macon Film Festival partners with Macon's Museum of Arts and Sciences (MAS) to host the Full Dome Film category.

Renovated and re-opened in 2012, the MAS Planetarium features an industry’s leading projection technology – the Konica Minolta Super MediaGlobe II – plus a 44-foot dome, the largest in Central Georgia or within a 100-mile radius of Macon. This state-of-the-art digital system, the first installation in Georgia and only third in the U.S., incorporates a new standard in projection.

Building on the success of its traditional astronomy programming, the MAS is a leader in delivering unique immersive artistic multimedia experiences in its full dome venue. As planetariums across the world become more technologically advanced, artistic expression on the dome is becoming very popular and much of the work in this immersive medium is quite stunning. The MAS encourages others in the planetarium field, universities, museums, creative artists, and film producers to explore and embrace full dome projection technology as an educational tool and immersive art form.
