Time Out says

In an Australian first, Melbourne Planetarium is hosting a festival comprising entirely of films projected onto its dome

Hold onto your eyeballs – Scienceworks is hosting a brand-new festival which will showcase new release fulldome films from around the world. Wondering what a “fulldome film” is? Naturally, it’s a film that’s been specifically made to be screened on a Planetarium’s huge domed ceiling. 

This new festival will be split into four sections: children shows, family shows, emerging artist and experimental films, and astronomy and documentary films. You can check out the full program of films here but it features anything from NASA explorations, underwater reef missions and so much more. 

A full festival pass (which guarantees you access to all shows throughout the entire weekend) is $100, otherwise you can opt for a day pass ($60) or a session pass ($20). Sessions last for 90 minutes and include multiple short film screenings.
