Yesterday, I came back from the IPS 2018 Conference (International Planetarium Society) in Toulouse, France. This special venue includes Fulldome Film Festival as well as the IPS Conference and takes place every two years in different country. Fulldome professionals, planetarians, scientists and many others from all around the world share their experiences one to another holding the community together. In the dome of the Cite de l'space the audience had a chance to see our fulldome movie "Hello Earth", among other excellent fulldome productions. This is one of these rare moments when we can share our work with others and finally, simply enjoy it. Merci beaucoup!
