About this event

AN EVENT NOT TO MISS! There is something for everyone to love during Dome Fest West. See last year's selection in the trailer above!

We invite you to join us at DOME FEST WEST, an Immersive Fulldome film festival conference. This unique event will bring together the Immersive Dome Community with Hollywood's up-and-coming content creators. Come see the new and better way to watch immersive video content; on a planetarium dome!

Dome Fest West 2022 will include over 45 Dome film screenings, technology presentations, industry panels, festival mixers, and interactive workshops. All-Access Festival passes are available that include access to all of the Dome Fest West events taking place over the weekend, as well as All-Access Screening passes that allow for unlimited access to the screening portion of the festival.

Over this exciting weekend, immersive filmmakers from across the globe will have a chance to watch the most cutting-edge experiences and programs, learn from the best producers in the Entertainment Industry, and ultimately take immersive Dome content to another level. 

It’s clear that Dome content isn't just for planetariums or science centers anymore! As more Dome venues come online in 2022, moviegoers will have a brand new way to watch Hollywood-caliber immersive content -- all without requiring a VR headset.
