      Dear Planetarium and Fulldome friends,

      we are happy to announce to most comprehensive FullDome Festival ever. 2010
      will already be the 4th edition of the FullDome Festival at the Jena
      Planetarium in the heart of Germany, and again with an extended scope: For
      the first time, full-length feature shows will be presented. The agenda is
      amazing. The Festival will see 27 all new shows from producers of America,
      Asia, Australia and Europe. We are proud to present two world premieres:
      Natural Selection by Robin Sip (Mirage3D) and tempus.ruhr by Rocco
      Helmchen, an artistic fulldome show introducing the largest conurbation in
      Europe by combining time-laps photography and fulldome animation.
      Remaining a regular program item, the Student Festival will present, and
      award prizes to, fulldome sequences created by students. The Festival will
      culminate with a Saturday-night gala of the best entries in the categories
      of student contributions, professional clips, and of the best full-length
      feature show(s).
      Gather with professionals and new talents. Join creative minds. The
      Festival not only provides a survey of the current innovative development
      of fulldome contents but is also the best opportunity for all fulldome
      theaters to meet professionals and to look for content. A public forum of
      the IMERSA group will take place on Friday, May 7.

      All events of the festival will be accessible to the public. The best
      fulldome productions will win prizes. Carl Zeiss will award three prizes to
      the best student entries. A panel of judges will also assess the fulldome
      feature shows and clips entered by professional producers. The winners in
      both categories will get the "FullDome Festival Award of Excellence" ? a
      special mark of distinction for high-quality shows. The award ceremony will
      take place during the Festival Gala on Saturday, May 8, 2010.
