When two quantum particles are entangled, it can also be said they are “nonlocal”: their physical proximity does not affect the way their quantum states are linked.
Go to our announcement page to learn more about the Quantum Shorts finalists that have claimed the First Prize, Runner Up and People's Choice awards.
Our judges applauded the films. Honor Harger, Executive Director at the ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore, praised the winner's “ravishing visuals and stunning sound.” But it wasn't only the winners that drew appreciation from our six distinguished judges. Filmmaker and writer Alex Winter said, “It was great to see so many varied approaches to quantum, in terms of narrative form, cinematic style and humor. All of the shorts had a lot to offer!” You can still enjoy all ten of our finalists here.
Thank you to the filmmakers, the festival partners, and the audience for a fantastic year of Quantum Shorts.
