The Hamptons International Film Festival was the first film festival to partner with the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to give an annual cash prize to a film that features a realistic and compelling portrayal of science and technology. The Hamptons/Sloan Feature Film Prize comes from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation’s program in public understanding of science and forms part of a broader effort to stimulate leading artists in film, television, and theater creating more credible works about science and technology. In 2013, that prize went to Decoding Annie Parker.
