In 1975, Stephen Hawking showed that the principles of quantum mechanics would mean that a black hole emits a slow stream of particles and would eventually evaporate.
We will be updating this page as new venues join the Quantum Shorts film festival. Plans for online events are in the works while plans for live screening events are contingent on local pandemic conditions. Please check back later or sign up for our newsletter for updates.
ArtScience Museum will host a screening organised in collaboration with the Centre for Quantum Technologies.
Event dates: February
ArtScience Museum is a major cultural institution in Singapore that explores the intersection between art, science, technology and culture. It is the cultural component of Marina Bay Sands. Since its opening in February 2011, ArtScience Museum has staged large-scale exhibitions by some of the world’s major artists, including Leonardo da Vinci, M.C. Escher, Salvador Dalí, Andy Warhol and Vincent Van Gogh, as well as exhibitions that explore aspects of science and technology – including particle physics, big data, robotics, palaeontology, marine biology and space science.
The Otago Museum, Dunedin, New Zealand will host a screening organised in collaboration with the Dodd-Walls Centre for Photonic and Quantum Technologies.
Event dates: 19 March
Otago Museum shares the natural, cultural, and scientific stories of Otago, Aotearoa New Zealand and the world.
We began as a small collection of rocks in 1868. Over 150 years, our collections and purpose have evolved, growing to more than 1.5 million objects available for research and examination as well as for display in public galleries and exhibitions. Knowledge has the power to break down barriers, inspire change and spark creativity so we use these objects to tell our visitors more about the world – from here in Dunedin to deep space, from millions of years ago to envelope-pushing research.
Alongside our exhibition galleries, Otago Museum hosts the Tūhura Otago Community Trust Science Centre and the Perpetual Guardian Planetarium. Tūhura’s 45 interactive exhibits and three storey Tropical Forest butterfly enclosure, together with the planetarium’s fully immersive digital experience, brings science to life for our visitors.
The Sydney Quantum Academy will host a screening organised in collaboration with the ARC Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems
Event date: TBC
The Sydney Quantum Academy (SQA)'s vision is to build Australia’s quantum economy. Collaborating with academia, industry and government, SQA harnesses Sydney’s collective quantum expertise to develop diverse talent and a globally recognised quantum ecosystem. The SQA is a unique partnership between four world-leading universities – Macquarie University, UNSW Sydney, the University of Sydney and University of Technology Sydney – generously supported by the NSW Government.
