A new and growing field that explores whether many biological processes depend on uniquely quantum processes to work. Under particular scrutiny at the moment are photosynthesis, smell and the navigation of migratory birds.
For filmmakers entering the Quantum Shorts film festival, the hard work is over. They have either met our 5 December deadline in this universe, or they have missed it. We have received some 232 quantum-inspired films from 58 different countries.
Our shortlisting panel now takes over the tough task of whittling down the submissions to a shortlist of up to ten finalists. The panelists will review the films and judge them based on two criteria: the film’s link to quantum physics, and the conceptual and technical execution of storytelling. The results of the panel’s deliberations will be announced in February next year.
We benefit from the expertise of both returning and new members on our shortlisting panel. This year, we welcome these new explorers of quantum creativity:
