Quantum Shorts film screening at York Festival of Ideas

The Quantum Communications Hub is hosting a film screening as part of the York Festival of Ideas 2021. From a crime solved using quantum clues to a comedic take on quantum superposition, we present a special screening of the top ten shortlisted films of the international Quantum Shorts Festival.

The short five-minute films, all inspired by quantum physics include live action, puppeteering and animation, across a range of genres. Watching films that will make you laugh out loud and others that will open up your imagination, you will see how science meets art in fun and creative ways.

The Quantum Shorts Festival is organised by the Centre for Quantum Technologies at the National University of Singapore, with media partners Nature and Scientific American and an international network of scientific and screening partners.

This event, organised by the UK Quantum Communications Hub, will involve Hub Director, Tim Spiller, providing a brief introduction into the key concepts of quantum physics, followed by a screening of all ten shortlisted films, each with brief commentary on their individual take on quantum.

Grab your popcorn and join us on this quantum journey!

This is a YouTube Premiere event. You’ll be sent a link to the screening a couple of days before it takes place, as well as a reminder an hour before.
