The 8th International Festival of Science Visualization

Message from Chair

Today, we are surrounded with a wide variety of impressive video contents including immersive media. Fulldome films are screened in dome theaters/planetariums around the world, and even on a private basis 360-degree movies can be viewed on YouTube or with a head-mount display.

Major advancements in technology have allowed us to not only enjoy such video contents but engage ourselves in video production as well. Anyone can become a fulldome video creator with simple editing equipment.In our Dome Fest, you can experience the power of immersive media through aspiring top creators’ latest works.
Those who have interest in fulldome production are also encouraged to participate in the Fulldome Video Production Workshop.


Join the International Festival of Science Visualization/IFSV to become part of immersive media society, and explore the possibilities of future science films.
