Fulldome festival in Russia!
"Reflections of the Universe" will take place in Valentina Tereshkova Cultural and Educational Center in Yaroslavl, Russia October 21-21 2013. Supporters of this international festival of planetarium fulldome shows include the Russian Planetarium Association and the International Planetarium Society. 2013 marks the 50th anniversary of the space flight of Valentina Tereshkova, the first woman in space.
The 2013 MediaGlobe Users Group Meeting will be hosted by the recently-renovated Settlemyre Planetarium at the Museum of York County in Rock Hill, SC. The exact length of the meeting will be determined by the number of workshops offered, but the current plan is to start on the afternoon of Sunday, August 4 and conclude on the afternoon of Wednesday, August 7.
The Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival is accepting entries for 2013. Fulldome filmmakers are encouraged to look at the "Immersive" category.
In previous years, if JHWFF received a sufficient number of fulldome entries in the Immersive category it would then establish a separate category just for Fulldome. The Festival takes place in Jackson Hole, Wyoming USA on Sept 23-27.
