The Art of 360°

Arts 360° Film

Presented by: Fulldome Festival Foundation

Everyone knows the fisheye camera, the videos, and the VR headsets. 360° images have long since entered the mainstream . . . you’d think. Yet very few people are aware that for more than a decade there’s been an art movement in the film world that makes use of the 360° format for the geodesic dome – gigantic projections on curved screens that surround the viewer completely. Those who’ve been to a planetarium are familiar with the fulldome effect. A planetarium, however, is more the realm of astronomy and science, and not so much of art and music. What about other domes of this sort, with fulldome technology? There aren’t exactly a lot of them around. Meaning: artistic fulldome films don’t get seen by the broader public very often.

And so our thinking was: Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes! In partnership with the Jena FullDome Festival, we’re screening the best short films from around the world in the genres of fiction, art, and music. Excellent stories, brilliant visualisations, amazing tracking shots. Where? The big – 20-metre diameter! – Reeperbahn Festival dome.
