At CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, this machine is smashing apart particles in order to discover their constituent parts and the quantum laws that govern their behaviour.
Entries to this year's Quantum Shorts will be watched by extraordinary physicists, filmmakers and communicators.
The judging panel will decide the contest's top prizes. The shortlisting panel will review all submissions to choose up to ten films for the top prizes. We're thrilled to have the people named here be part of this year's festival.
