Tribeca Film Institute Invites Entries With Scientific Themes for Sloan Filmmaker Fund
With support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the Tribeca Film Institute Sloan Filmmaker Fund provides grants and professional guidance in support of innovative and compelling narrative features that offer a fresh take on scientific, mathematic, and technological themes.
Funding is available for films at any stage, and for filmmakers based anywhere. Applicants are required to apply with a treatment or a feature-length screenplay, with or without a director attached. Consideration will be given not only to the creative merit of each project, but to the accuracy of the script's scientific content, as well as the team's ability to see the project through to completion.
Three to six filmmakers will receive a grant of $25,000 to $50,000 to use toward the development, production, or post-production of a film project. Grantees will participate in panels, workshops, and one-on-one meetings with industry executives during the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival. In addition, grantees will receive professional guidance and mentorship through the Tribeca Film Institute as dictated by the unique needs and status of the project and the level of experience of the filmmaking team.
