Tribeca Institute Announces Winners


The Tribeca Film Institute (TFI) ( today announced the films that will receive financial and creative support from the TFI Sloan Filmmaker Fund, provided by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.  This year, of 128 applicants, six projects will be awarded a total of $140,000 to help filmmakers both create and distribute their films.  In addition, grant recipients will also receive year-round mentorship from science experts and members of the film industry.  The TFI Sloan Filmmaker Fund awards grants to narrative film projects that dramatize science and technology themes in film or that portray scientists, engineers, or mathematicians in prominent character roles.

The films selected tell a broad range of stories including a journalist uncovering the truth about great white sharks, a young girl’s emotional connection to global warming, the partnership between an astronomer and an eccentric enthusiast, a librarian’s chronicling of obsolete things in a changing world, and the complications, both moral and marital, faced by the scientists who developed chemical warfare and the atomic bomb.

“We are thrilled to join Tribeca for the 9th consecutive year in supporting screenwriters and directors who tackle science and technology themes and characters in innovative ways,” stated Doron Weber, Sloan Vice President.  “The impressive body of work by this year’s winners shows us how entertaining and unexpected the world can look when seen through a lens enlivened by scientific insight and understanding. “
