A screening of 10 Quantum Shorts
A festival for quantum-inspired films

The Quantum Shorts festival called for short films inspired by quantum physics and the universe answered. Filmmakers all over the world responded with their movies.

Join us for a screening of the top ten shortlisted films at the Apollo Cinema with discussion moderated by John Donohue, Manager, Scientific Outreach at the Institute for Quantum Computing. Don't forget to vote for your favourite in the People's Choice Award category.
