In addition to the video content and award history the site catalogues, the website features articles about Sloan films; status updates about members of the Sloan film community; and general interest articles, news items, and features about science as depicted in film and television in the broader culture. This grant provides three years of continued support to MoMI for hosting and curation of the Sloan Science and Film website. Additional funds support a series of science and film events hosted by MoMI during the World Science Festival and the Imagine Science Festival.
