    With immersive media such as virtual reality on the rise, more and more documentary filmmakers and artists have been exploring the possibilities of planetariums and domes, and the collective experience of dome projection. What new realities can be discovered if we look beyond the traditional starry sky and universe? Seeking out the boundaries of the planetarium, IDFA's new media program DocLab presents a series of unique live cinema nights in the ARTIS Planetarium, made in collaboration with Berliner Festspiele, Diversion Cinema and ARTIS. Immerse yourself in a unique evening full of spectacular 360-degree documentaries and groundbreaking immersive experiments under the huge dome screen at the ARTIS-Planetarium. 

    With a.o: Elektra by Metahaven and Non-face by Robert Lippok and Lucas Gutierrez.

    The ARTIS-Planetarium is one of IDFA DocLab’s new locations, with this year’s edition also taking place at Tolhuistuin (main location and ongoing exhibition), Compagnietheater (DocLab Interactive Conference) and Lil' Amsterdam Central Station (VR cinema).

    In digital models, objects sometimes appear that seem real, but that are geometrically impossible and couldn’t physically exist. In this dome projection, they acquire a physical presence through sound waves. Read more
