The Sloan Foundation's partnership with Coolidge Corner Theater’s Science on Screen program provides an opportunity for both those Sloan-winning films that reach completion and those that have won Sloan prizes at festivals to be shown at nonprofit cinemas nationwide.
Science on Screen creatively pairs screenings of classic, cult and documentary films with lively introductions by notable figures from the world of science, technology and medicine. Each film is used as a jumping-off point for the speaker to reveal current scientific research or technological advances, providing the perfect combination of entertainment and enlightenment–for even the most science-phobic culture vulture.
