The Sloan Film Program "aims to influence the next generation of filmmakers to tackle science and technology themes and characters, to increase visibility for feature films that depict this subject matter and to produce new films about science and technology and about scientists, engineers and mathematicians." To fulfill this mission, the program awards grants to film schools, partners with film institutes and other organizations to develop science themed screenplays, and awards annual Science and Technology Feature Films Prizes. On this website, courtesy of the Museum of the Moving Image, film fans can learn more about the program and, best of all, explore and watch a collection of over 50 short science-themed films. To access the film collection, visitors can select Watch Films from the Sloan-Awarded Films page. These films are accompanied by a series of Teacher's Guides for K-12 educators interested in incorporating them into the classroom.
