Hey all,

My inbox has been ringing off the hook for months with DF09 inquiries. Thank you and please accept my apologies for being unresponsive. It’s been a very very busy and interesting year here at the ARTS Lab.

So here’s where we are:

We’ve been scheming and dreaming about DomeFest 2009 and have a lot of special programs planned. And we’ve been working to find the right time to gather ( and lots of partners to arrange).

We’ve finally landed upon dates: 25-27 September 2009, with pre- and post-festival events on the evening of 24th and day of 28th. We’re hoping the later dates ease travel costs for our international friends and give us all time to work through budgets in these economically challenging times.

It’ll be back here in New Mexico, co-located on the University of New Mexico campus (ARTS Lab) and the Planetarium at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History (aka LodeStar). With the later dates, you’ll be able to enjoy the fall weather and scenery of the high desert.

The program will be similar to DF07:
+The Juried Show Premiere & Domie Award Presentations
+”Making of...” Screenings & Presentations [full distributed shows and shorts]
+Technical Talks [insider/research-based: hardware, software, data, interface and whatnot]
+Production Talks [audience/program-based: techniques, stories, etc.]
+Tech Demos
+Lots of great people and opportunities to connect

With the support of Sky-Skan, we’ll have a gorgeous and cutting-edge big dome. We’ll have small dome programs in both the ARTS Lab gDome and more through the support of elumenati.

And IMERSA will be lending an important hand on the talks and demos.

Some more dates/deadlines:
+ 06 July: Registration opens
+ 24 July: Papers, Talks & “Making of...” Proposals Due
+ 04 August: Juried Show Submissions Due
+ 18 August: Accepted “Making of...” content due

We’ll have the submission guidelines on the DF web site in the next week. The Juried Show guidelines will be similar to past years. (See prior fest sites at www.domefest.org). And we’re excited by an invitation from Ryan Wyatt and the glorious Morrison Planetarium @ California Academy of Sciences to host another stellar group of jurors to review this year’s submissions.

More coming soon. I’ll be e-bombing a lot of you as I go through my contact lists and the overflowing ‘follow-up’ bucket in my email. Please excuse redundancies.

Ditto, was planning on submitting some work but there is no release forms etc to dl, don't want to miss the Aug 4 submission deadline but don't want to send a hard drive into a void either?
