Dear fulldome fans,

This is the fourth time I am writing to invite you to the Fulldome Festival Brno. Because for the fourth time we are going to try to show the most interesting works for a unique medium called a digital planetarium.

What are the possibilities of digital planetariums? Have fulldome show creators reached the limits of these machines for audiovisual miracles? Can we get any further? Or come up with something new? Will there be a show at the festival that will fit exactly to your planetarium? Or will you, the producers, manage to sell any of your shows?

You may find the answers to these and other questions at the Fulldome Festival Brno 2018, held from June 6 to 8, 2018.

For the 2018 festival we have found a rather mysterious subtitle. The Fulldome Festival Brno 2018 – A Farewell Festival… What are we going to say goodbye to and why? Will it be a sad or happy farewell? And does saying goodbye mean the arrival of something new? The best will be if you come to see for yourselves. I can personally promise you it will be a nice meeting.

We look forward to you.

Best regards
Jiří Dušek, Director of Brno Observatory and Planetarium



I would like to invite you personally to the Fulldome Festival Brno 2018, held in the premises of the Brno Observatory and Planetarium from June 6 to 8, 2018.

The city of Brno is the centre of biomedicine and IT technologies. Every fifth person you meet in the streets is a university student. There are 13 universities in our city offering a wide range of study fields. Brno has a strong position in the field of science, research and innovations; it is the centre of excellent science; and it builds its development strategy on skilled and qualified workforce. In Brno you can find branches of companies like Honeywell, IBM, Red Hat and NetSuite. For good reason the city of Brno is referred to as the Czech Silicon Valley.

If you accept my invitation, we, in collaboration with the Brno Observatory and Planetarium, will prepare a unique program for you. You will not only see the latest shows for digital planetariums, but also taste a bit of the hospitality of our city. The cafés, great restaurants, interesting monuments of Czech functionalism… and many more are waiting for you.

I look forward to your visit.

Petr Vokřál, Mayor of Statutory City of Brno
