The Jena FullDome Festival wants to encourage people from planetariums, fulldome theatres, universities, museums, creative artists, pioneers, vendors and visionaries to explore and embrace fulldome as an educational tool, immersive art form, and mind-altering experience also in the future.
Within ten years, a festival has matured which began as a venture of committed volunteers and now starts a new phase of development as a professional organization. Growing international attention, a high degree of acceptance among experts, and bright prospects of development now make it advisable to replace sporadic and voluntary efforts with a continuous, planful enterprise.
By establishing the Fulldome Festival Foundation, the founders lay the groundwork for the future. The founders intend to secure the Festival‘s lasting existence.
