Discover the latest planetarium productions from around the world when you visit IPS 2020 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
IPS Full Dome Showcase is a unique film festival shown on a large hemispherical screen in TELUS World of Science’s new Zeidler Dome theatre. For a few days, a number of original films will be shown highlighting different themes and topics from around the world. After the festival a jury will make a selection of best films, based on varying criteria, and awards will be handed out.
We are excited to host everyone for the IPS 2020 conference in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada from June 18 – 25, with our IPS Full Dome Showcase taking place on Thursday, June 18 and Friday, June 19. The two day IPS Full Dome Showcase will present the best full dome content available for planetariums.

The IPS Full Dome Showcase selection committee will be constituted with up to ten IPS members who will review the submitted films, via download links to preview the content from the show producers and distributors. The selection committee will then vote on the films to make the final selection for the full Dome Showcase in consultation with the program team from TELUS World of Science – Edmonton.
