Sonia Shechet Epstein

Sonia Shechet Epstein is Curator of Science and Technology, Executive Editor, Sloan Science & Film, and First Look Exhibitions and Film Programmer at Museum of the Moving Image in New York City. She oversees the Museum's online publication as well as administration of the Sloan Student Prizes. She curates the ongoing film series "Science on Screen" which pairs rarely-seen films with conversations between scientists and filmmakers that offer new perspectives on both film and scientific subject matter. Sonia develops and organizes exhibitions, including Twitch, Pop, Bloom: Science in Action and an installation of David Levine's Dissolution. In addition, she is on the selection committee for the Museum's annual First Look Film Festival, and curates an annual exhibition showcasing new, boundary-pushing work. She has lectured internationally about the intersection of science and cinema, and was selected to be part of the 2022 edition of Berlinale Talents.
