Hi ASC-ers!

Just in case any of you are in town for the World Science Festival next
month, I wanted to bring your attention to a free screening of shortlisted
entries from the international film competition "Quantum Shorts".

The ARC Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems will showcase
10 finalist entries from the film festival *Quantum Shorts* at the
Queensland Gallery of Modern Art on 24 March.

The ten films were chosen from 203 submissions received from across the
world during the 2016 call for entries.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A panel with quantum physicists who
can answer your film-inspired questions.

Tickets for the screening are available at *bit.ly/QuantumShortsWSFB

Let me know if you have any questions!
