FULLDOME SHOWCASE 1

Various (MIFF 2013, Special Events)

MIFF is excited to again present a special program of jaw-dropping fulldome screenings at the Melbourne Planetarium. Located at Scienceworks, the Planetarium features a 16-metre domed ceiling, reclining seats, a surround-sound stereo system and projection system that blankets the dome with a single, seamless, super high-resolution image resulting in spectacular colour and movement.

Showcase 1 includes:

White Room:02B3

USA 15 mins

From Roddenberry Entertainment, the creators of Star Trek, comes a groundbreaking, 360° fulldome, live-action experience. Six strangers wake up in a white room with no exits, only to find that they are unwilling participants in an extraordinary experiment that could change the face of humanity forever.

Kilpisjärvellä

Finland 17 mins

Kilpisjärvellä presents the Northern Lights as they are experienced by someone watching them from the ground. The film follows two cameramen working to record the lights on video as they walk through the tundra, looking for the best spot to capture them.

Six Mil Antennas

Canada 55 mins

Commissioned by the Société des Arts Technologiques, Six Mil Antennas is a 360° immersive movie that reimagines different states of the world within a futuristic time frame. The piece's tone alternates from deconstructed gravity to aesthetic sensuality and even includes satirical humour.
