Ideas at the heart of quantum theory, to do with randomness and the character of the molecules that make up the physical matter of our brains, lead some researchers to suggest humans can’t have free will.
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 2018, the winner was short film Slide by Thomas Tay.
