Sloan Science & Film is an online publication presented by Museum of the Moving Image, and is devoted to exploring the intersection of science and film and enhancing the public's understanding of science and technology. It features award-winning science-themed short films that have been supported by grants from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, interviews with filmmakers and scientists, news about the Sloan Film Program's completed feature films, awards and other activities, and original articles exploring the cinematic depictions of scientific ideas and the portrayal of scientists in film and television.


The Sloan Science & Film Teacher's Guide is a guide to short science-related films for the classroom. It offers an introduction, teaching framework, study questions, and links to additional resources for over 40 narrative films, with subjects ranging from evolution to mathematics, with links to stream the films.
