The Dome Under Festival is back in 2024! The Melbourne Planetarium is pleased to invite you to participate in the Dome Under Fulldome Festival, the only Fulldome Film Festival in Australia. The festival will take place at the Melbourne Planetarium, 3-4 February 2024.

The two-day film festival will be a celebration of the fulldome film format and it will promote the medium to a wider audience. The festival is independent and open to contributions from all around the world.


Filmmakers, producers and distributors may apply to present full-length feature shows or short films (including student works).
