This grant provides ongoing funding to the Sloan Film Program at Columbia University, which supports young screenwriters and directors in creating new work with science and technology themes and characters. Under the stewardship of Trey Ellis, grant funds will allow Columbia to maintain two production awards for short films and provide expanded access to a mentorship program offering a stipend and research opportunities to a shortlist of three screenwriters. Grant funds will also allow the film school to expand an annual seminar into a major event at Columbia’s Lenfest Center for the Arts on the Manhattanville campus, which will include scientists and other researchers in addition to would-be applicants to the Sloan Film Program.
