An unmissable highlight of the 2009 BigPond Adelaide Film Festival will be THE DOME PROJECT presented by the Australian Network for Art & Technology (ANAT). This unique program showcases films created for full-dome environments, a new and powerful digital medium that provides large-format immersive experiences presented on the hemispheric screens of both fixed and portable planetariums.

No longer “limited” to the cosmos, full-dome is a rapidly growing platform enabling filmmakers and artists working in screen-based media to produce works with the potential to capture and engage audiences as never before. With full-dome theatres now exceeding the number of IMAX and other large format theatres worldwide, the medium is fast maturing and branching outside of traditional astronomy-related programming and into the broader arts and sciences.

The Dome Project introduces Festival audiences, artists and filmmakers to the production and exhibition opportunities being made available through these developments.
