Quantum Shorts Film Festival Screening: The Finalists.
Otago Museum and the Dodd-Walls Centre are bringing you the weird, wonderful, and stranger-than-fiction side of science during Dunedin Fringe 2021!
For one night only, catch a live screening of the 10 finalists of the Quantum Shorts Film Competition – a global contest wherein filmmakers need to tell a 'quantum-inspired story' in no more than five minutes. This year’s finalists were selected from 224 films from 52 different countries. Using techniques that range from live-action to animation to puppeteering, they range from a “laugh out loud” comedy to a “painfully touching” drama, to a “brilliantly unexpected” suspense film, and more.
MC'ed by Otago’s own Professor David Hutchinson, the evening will include nibbles, a cash bar, and a panel of physicists from the Dodd-Walls Centre, who will be on-hand to answer questions, unpack and dissect the science, and help you decide what is science and what is fiction.
So join us to embrace the wonderfully wacky and slightly absurd quantum physical world.
