Moscow International Science Films Festival 2024 - Submissions Open

Moscow Planetarium is delighted to invite you to become a participant of the Moscow International Science Films Festival (MISFF), which will take place on 7-10 November 2024. The festival is organised by the Moscow Planetarium.

We are passionate about showcasing the best in science cinema from around the world. It is the only art form capable of comprehending rapidly developing technologies and lucidly explaining the most complex scientific discoveries. We dedicate the festival to the whole variety of science cinema: cartoons, classic films and, most importantly, fulldome cinema!

Planetariums have become pioneers of immersive science cinema! Fulldome cinema is a young field characterised by experimentation and the search for innovative production methods that can be easily combined with classical film-making methods. We are witnessing an explosive growth of the fulldome film industry! This would not have happened without the joint efforts of several hundred unique specialists. Every new project brings something new to the history of the genre, be it technical innovation or conceptual. When we talk about science cinema, we see the incredible stories of thousands of people who have dedicated themselves to enlightenment. As organisers of the MISFF, we are thrilled to support the amazing community of science popularisers: people who cannot imagine their lives without science cinema.

We're thrilled to invite you to submit your films to the festival as part of the Fulldome Film Programme! This is a fantastic opportunity to showcase your work and share it with a wider audience. We'll provide all the support you need to make the most of the festival screening, including reaching a diverse range of viewers, professional feedback, and media promotion.

We're so excited to announce that the festival will be attended by the heads of several dozen Russian planetariums who are interested in buying fulldome films! In addition, you will be able to establish business contacts with content distributors and scientific organisations.
