This happens when quantum objects “borrow” energy in order to bypass an obstacle such as a gap in an electrical circuit. It is possible thanks to the uncertainty principle, and enables quantum particles to do things other particles can’t.
Talented writers and filmmakers have been submitting their quantum-inspired creations to Quantum Shorts for the past seven years.
Do you have a little time to explore? We recommend you start with the first-prize winners in the most recent film and fiction calls. In Quantum Shorts 2017, the story “Acceptable Loss” by Przemysław Zańko claimed top prize. In 2016, the winner was short film Novae by Thomas Vanz. Then visit our Inspiration section to fill up on quantum ideas.
Do you want to see more? We've gathered the shortlisted entries from all previous years in the Film Archive and Fiction Archive. The finalists in the Quantum Shorts 2018 film festival will appear here too, after this year's call for entries closes.
