About the
2019 DTLA Film Festival
Dome Film Series

In October 2019, the DTLA Film Festival hosted the first Dome Film Series in Los Angeles. For this series within the larger DTLA Film Festival, we worked hard to select the best Fulldome films across the globe with a focus on narrative storytelling.


The series included several Dome Film World Premieres of narrative features from internationally known filmmakers including Randal Kleiser, Lena Herzog, Ed Lantz, Robot Koch, Darcelle XV, Jacob Collier, as well the first feature-length dome-film documentary to be released in the U.S.
