iW NEWS | TFI Announces Sloan Fund Recipients

The Tribeca Film Institute (TFI) has announced the selection of five film projects to receive financial and creative support from its inaugural TFI Sloan Filmmaker Fund, supported by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Out of 130 applications submitted, the five projects chosen will receive a total of $110,000. The TFI Sloan Filmmaker Fund supports narrative projects that “tell compelling stories about science and technology or portray scientists, engineers and mathematicians as major characters.” The selected projects are “Face Value,” “The Radioactive Boy Scout,” “Alva,” “A Noble Affair” and “Kitty Hawk.” “The TFI Sloan Filmmaker Fund affords us an opportunity to provide funding at a crucial time in the industry,” said Jane Rosenthal, Co-Chairman of the Board, TFI, in a statement. “These are projects we would like to see brought to fruition and we are happy to be able to support them with funding and our vote of confidence.” Submissions for the 2009 TFI Sloan Filmmaker Fund open November 12, 2008 and will be accepted through January 9, 2009.
