Sundance: ‘I Origins’ wins Alfred P. Sloan feature film prize for science-themed movies
Mike Cahill’s “I Origins” has won the Alfred P. Sloan Feature Film Prize at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, the Sundance Institute announced Tuesday. Additionally, Joan Stein Schimke and Averie Storck’s “The Buried Life” has been named the recipient of the Alfred P. Sloan Lab Fellowship, which is presented through the Institute’s Feature Film Program.
Both recognitions are part of the Sundance Institute Science-in-Film Initiative, which is made possible by a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. The initiative supports the development and exhibition of new independent film projects that explore science and technology themes or that depict scientists, engineers and mathematicians in engaging and innovative ways.
