      5th FullDome Festival at the Zeiss-Planetarium Jena
      12th -14th of May 2011

      The Zeiss-Planetarium in Jena is pleased to present state-of-the-art
      fulldome productions and visual experiments at the 5th FullDome Festival
      May 12 to 14.
      The festival will give insights into the world of immersive fulldome
      projections and map current developments in this young medium. Initially
      featuring mostly student productions, the festival soon evolved into a
      meeting place for the international fulldome-scene.
      This year?s special focus is on Franz Liszt, the ?European in Thuringia?.
      The three-day festival will show how Liszt?s artistic ideas and
      compositions can be translated into the fulldome format. Both, for admirers
      of the composer and fulldome enthusiasts, this official contribution to the
      Franz Liszt year 2011 will offer many surprises.
      As in previous years, a broad spectrum of visual and auditory adventures in
      360° will be presented in the program. For the first time, the festival
      will offer expert workshops about real time applications in the dome and
      presentations dealing with the question: ?Fulldome ? minority hype or
      medium of the future??
      All fulldome productions will be judged according to their quality,
      creativity and innovation. There will be record-breaking prizes for winning
      entries. The VisuaLiszt-Awards, totalling about $10,000, are sponsored by
      the Thuringian Ministry of Education, Science and Art in cooperation with
      the Kunstverein Apolda Avantgarde e.V. and the region of Erfurt, Weimar and
      Jena as part of the Franz-Liszt-Year 2011. Three Fulldome-Awards again are
      sponsored by the Carl Zeiss AG, totalling $2,100: The Creative Award for
      the best idea of a student production; the Performance Award for the best
      technical implementation of a student production; finally, the Audience
      Award balloted by the audience at the festival gala out of the best-of
      election shown on that night.
      ?Showcasing Real Time Footage? is the title of an expert workshop, where
      VJs and designers, lecturers, students and media artists are talking about
      the latest trend in fulldome: how to bring live generated images and sounds
      into the dome. The presentations on Friday are open to the public. The
      presentations are partly held in English and discuss: ?Fulldome ? minority
      hype or medium of the future?"
