International Year of Light Film Festival

During the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies 2015 (IYL 2015), many people worldwide have decided to celebrate light and the IYL 2015’s themes and goals by creating several videos documenting IYL 2015 anniversaries, physics phenomena related to light or just IYL 2015 activities. With this festival we would like to get a glimpse of what have been produced around the world and pay homage to the creators of the videos.
