Presenting CineSpace

CineSpace, a collaboration between the two organizations, is a short film competition that allows filmmakers around the world a chance to share their work inspired by, and using, actual NASA imagery.  Professional and aspiring filmmakers are invited to submit their work for the 2020 CineSpace competition. Submissions can range from any genre, including narrative, documentary, comedy, drama, animation, sci-fi, and more. Films must be no longer than 10 minutes and comprised of at least 10 percent publically available NASA imagery.  Sci-Port Discovery Center is pleased to announce that the Danya & Ronald L. Sawyer Space Dome Planetarium will be showcasing the 2019 award-winning competition films.”
