Under the Dome launch

Last week Friday, the 15th of November, the Centre for Curating the Archive launched the first experimental film festival of dome mastered content on the continent! The festival ran in collaboration with Iziko Museums of South Africa and screened nine short films, over three days, at Iziko's planetarium. This was a challenging process, not only in putting the festival together, but in facilitating the creation of this sort of content which has been largely unexplored in South Africa.

Immersive Cinema Screening

For the past few months nine teams of filmmakers have been working alongside the Centre for Curating the Archive and Iziko Museums of South Africa to create immersive films for the first digital dome film festival in the Southern Hemisphere. The CCA hoped that the launch of these films would help to open up new creative possibilities for artists and filmmakers interested in this wonderful immersive environment and, as such, we are happy to announce that Arkology will be hosting a public screening of three of the short films where attendees will be able to experience them in VR.
