To many researchers, the universe behaves like a gigantic quantum computer that is busy processing all the information it contains.
The perfect formula for a quantum-inspired short film, that is. We don't expect you to do the maths, just the film-making. Enter your experiment in the quantum genre to Quantum Shorts 2016 to be in the running for international screenings and cash prizes of up to $1500. We accept films up to five minutes long, with no entry fee.
Quantum Shorts has been running for five years, alternating between calls for short film and flash fiction. We are excited to be working with incredible judges and a constellation of prestigious partners to make this year's film edition better than ever. We look forward to watching your entries and sharing the best of them with audiences world-wide.
