Navegar Foundation held the Immersive Film Festival at Centro Multimeios of Espinho, Portugal, April 24-26. On an Evans & Sutherland fulldome digital video system, some 25 fulldome cinema productions were shown in addition to 23 new works submitted for creative competition.
Also on the program was a group discussion led by IMERSA, a nonprofit created to promote the fulldome medium. Sponsors of the event included Sky-Skan, RSA Cosmos, Global Imagination and Map Cards. Additional information and images at http://iff.multimeios.pt/.
Winning selections were made in five categories by a jury of four specialists (Dan Neafus of the Gates Planetarium at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, Mike Bruno of Spitz Inc., Michael Daut of Evans & Sutherland, fulldome producer/director Francisco Costa and journalist Sara Oliveira), excepting the Audience Award which was selected by public vote.
