FULLDOME SHOWCASE 1

(MIFF 2017, Special Events)

Always immensely popular, MIFF’s annual program of jaw-dropping fulldome screenings at the Melbourne Planetarium is back.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to take in a truly unique cinematic experience, lying back and immersing yourself in the stereo surround sound and super high-resolution images projected onto the 180º hemispherical dome ‘screen’ above your head!

Program 1 features:

Clockwork Ocean (Germany, 10 mins), a plunge into a world of fish, jellyfish and three-dimensional sound as coastal researchers at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht study virtually unexplored ocean eddies.

Vertiges (Canada, 20 mins) is a unique poetic, visual and musical experience that weaves a fantastic playground where philosophical, scientific and artistic concepts of time are skillfully explored in a kind of temporal vertigo.

The Man From the 9 Dimensions (Japan, 30 mins), a new kind of science movie from The Grudge director Takashi Shimuzu. Utilising the latest scientific data and theory, Shimuzu visualises the world as theoretical physicists see it. Be ready to be surprised by the new world of vibrating strings and hidden dimensions as they search for a Theory of Everything.
