The Tribeca Film Institute Sloan Filmmaker Fund is seeking feature length narrative works that dramatize compelling stories about science, technology, mathematics or medicine, as well as celebrated personalities in these fields. This previous year, we awarded a total of $110,000 towards miscellaneous pre-production needs and screenplay development to five projects.
Past projects that have received funding for screenplay development through the TFI/Sloan Partnership include outstanding screenplays about Rosalind Franklin, Hedy Lamarr, Richard Feynman, Edwin Hubble and Ramanujan, as well as many comedies.
