Following its preliminary event in 2009, IFSV was launched in Japan in 2010 as a festival for science films and visualizations. Our aim is to contribute to foster a culture of science appreciation through the promotion and development of visual expressions.
IFSV's recent focus goes to the exploration of the possibility of fulldome/immersive media.
Among various activities and events, IFSV's annual DomeFest has been gaining worldwide attention as a momentous event, attracting wide variety of people, from world's leading creators to novices or fulldome fans.
The 8th IFSV will provide an opportunity for welcoming creators, preparing the ground for cutting-edge works, as well as promote collaboration with digital planetarium systems, cooperation with related organization (such as IPS), and advance the community of science visualization as a whole.

I got involved since its launch, so this year’s fest will be my 8th IFSV (including pre-event) as a staff member. I hope you have great experience with fulldome movies and science films.

There should be infinite potential in fulldome movies, or so-called "immersive media". I am excited to see a new frontier in immersive experience.
