The Sloan Foundation has been funding student short films for many years, recognizing the work of talented young filmmakers at six Sloan partner film schools. These short films have screened at festivals across the country and around the world, and today, they can be seen right here on Sloan Science and Film. Take a look at some exciting new additions to our film database.
First, check out the trailer for Eben Portnoy's UCLA short film Wild Love, following capuchin monkey researchers in Costa Rica. Wild Love was screened at the 2014 Sloan Summit and is currently on the festival circuit.
Then take a look at Min Ding's Columbia short film, Three Light Bulbs. This film was also showcased at the Sloan Summit after festival screenings at the Boston International Film Festival, Newport Beach Film Festival, and the Busan International Film Festival, where it was awarded the Silver Panther.
Also new on the site is Yellow Rain, directed by L. Warren Thompson. The film received a 2011 Production Grant from USC and has screened at the Marbella International Film Festival and the Hawaii International Film Festival, among others.
