Quantum Shorts film screening at the York Festival of Ideas

The Quantum Communications Hub is sponsoring a film screening as part of this year’s York Festival of Ideas. From fascinating sci-fi visions to absurdist takes on the multiverse, we present a special screening of the top ten shortlisted finalists in the international Quantum Shorts Festival.

With quantum detectives, love stories and science-inspired comedy, the short five-minute films, all inspired by quantum physics, span a range of styles and genres. Discover how quantum physics allows us to look at the world in new ways, experiencing spooky connections across space and time, as well as powering new forms of computing and cryptography, imaging and sensing.

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.

The event will take place on Friday 14 June and will be introduced by University of York physicist and Hub Director Professor Tim Spiller, who will also answer questions at the end.

Why not come along and enjoy some free popcorn and a quantum adventure?
