The most precise clocks we have are atomic clocks which are powered by quantum mechanics. Besides keeping time, they can also let your smartphone know where you are.
Quantum Shorts is nothing without you: the people who enter their creative works of film and fiction, and those of you who visit to enjoy the work of others. We wouldn't get very far without our partners and judges either. We at the Centre for Quantum Technologies in Singapore, organiser of this annual celebration of quantum-inspired content, want to say a big thank you to everyone!
We are thrilled this year to have fantastic physicists, artists and film-makers involved in the judging process. Go see who they are. We are also grateful for the long-standing support of our media partners, Scientific American and Nature. This year's Quantum Shorts has a constellation of scientific partners too, from Australia, Canada, The Netherlands, New Zealand, the United States and the United Kingdom. Learn more about these quantum centres around the world on our scientific partners page. They will be working with screening partners to arrange international screenings of the films - we have a few lined up already, with more to be announced. Check our screening partners page for updates.
We can't wait to watch this year's quantum films. Good luck to all of you making movies! Here's a six-step guide on how to enter.
