2024 Submissions
Now Open!

Dome Fest West is calling for submissions for its 2024 festival competition. Whether you have a feature film, a short film, a live performance, or an interactive experience, this is your chance to be discovered and have your work seen by a dedicated audience. 

The Dome Fest West 2024 Film Festival aims to solve the market problem of providing a dedicated platform for fulldome filmmakers and immersive producers. Many talented filmmakers may not be aware that there is a place where they can show their films, and the growing immersive cinema community needs an event of its own to gather at. Dome Fest West fills this gap, offering a space for immersive storytellers to connect, exchange ideas, and celebrate the art of immersive cinema.

The planetarium, renowned for its state-of-the-art 8K digital projection, offers an immersive viewing experience like no other.


As we step into this next chapter of the festival, we remain committed to fostering a space where filmmakers can showcase their work in an environment that amplifies their creativity and vision. The Fiske Planetarium, with its advanced technology, aligns perfectly with this commitment, pushing the boundaries of the cinematic experience. We look forward to welcoming you to this iconic venue for a celebration of film that promises to be unforgettable.
