There are nearly infinite parallel worlds: Science/art. Fiction/documentary. Real-life/virtual reality. Privilege/poverty. Past/future. Freedom of movement/closed borders. Original/translation. Analog/digital. These diversities of perspective may, at first glance, seem opposed to each other. The very definition of parallel implies two elements that never converge. However, looking closer, we can always find commonalities beyond the contradictions. Whether it is in the creativity necessary for inspiration that exists for both scientists and artists, the universality of love between humans regardless of their experience, or the astonishing similarities between apparently disparate species – such as veins in a tree leaf and the network of capillaries in an animal – parallel worlds are everywhere and, above all, ripe for discovery.
Send us your short films of any format that fall under the theme of parallel worlds. Don’t be shy – our tastes are varied and we seek out unusual and surprising works that you wouldn’t necessarily expect to see at a science film festival.
