Jiří Dušek, Director of Brno Observatory and Planetarium


I am very glad to invite you to the Fulldome Festival Brno in June 2017 hosted by the Brno Observatory and Planetarium. The modern planetarium and the city where it is situated provide the festival and its guests with the top background. Thanks to the universities, every fifth person you meet in the streets of Brno is a university student. Thanks to the scientific institutions that are being built in the city, Brno is becoming a centre of excellent science, from biomedicine to IT. And it is the development of science, research and innovations requiring as well as creating highly qualified workforce that the city builds its development policy on.

An important role in the development and popularization of science in Brno is played by the digital planetarium, which has become one of the most popular local attractions. And it is not surprising at all. By means of movies, universal means of communication with a large scope and influence, which are made more attractive by amazing possibilities of this unusual audiovisual technology, it enables its visitors to travel in time and space, trough the micro as well as macro worlds.

I will be pleased if you join us on this magical voyage full of technological and movie magic. As a fulldome producer, as a planetarian, as a viewer…

Petr Vokřál, Mayor of the City of Brno

The festival was exceptionally well organized and the communication made it easy to follow the schedule.  It was a great support to IPS prior to the Warsaw conference. Keep up the great work and thank you for a wonderful festival. Shawn Laatsch, IPS President Elect

The festival was wonderful and I hope to participate again in the future. I would really like to thank the entire staff of Brno Observatory and Planetarium for being warm and friendly hosts, keeping everything running so smoothly, and making the entire festival a fun and exciting experience. Mark Webb, Adler Planetarium

First of all, the town is amazing, the people friendly, good food and the beer…. plentiful.  The location of the planetarium is spectacular, and Jiri and his entire team made us feel not only welcome, but like special guests.  I can’t remember attending a better organized festival – everything started on time, on schedule – no technical glitches and the shows all looked great! Mike Bruno, Spitz Creative Media

The festival was excellent.  It was fantastic to see such a wide range of films in a very comfortable and beautiful planetarium. There were great networking opportunities and the staff were all incredibly helpful. Warik Lawrance, Melbourne Planetarium
