National Evening of Science on Screen

On March 31, 2014 the Coolidge and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation presented a national evening of Science on Screen as part of our Science on Screen grant initiative.

Seventeen independent cinemas in cities across the country took part in this first-of-its-kind event, which featured a short introductory video, followed by a film and speaker presentation at each venue. While each program was unique, they all had the same aim: to engage people in science using film as the foundation. Read the press release here.

Listed below are the Science on Screen programs that were presented throughout the country.

Starred (*) films have received the Alfred P. Sloan Feature Film Prize given annually to outstanding feature films focusing on science or technology as a theme, or depicting a scientist, engineer or mathematician as a major character.
