On Invention: The Cinema and Science of Moving Forward

Whether they’re in the employ of labs or tinkering in the shed, the inventors of the world are united by vision and imagination. With the history of invention is as captivating as those who fill it, what role do they play in the world of science? And neurobiologically speaking, what does it mean to have an inventive mind? Moderator Ira Flatow, science author and NPR host; and panelists Alan Alda (Diminished Capacity); Amy Redford (The Guitar); Alex Rivera (Sleep Dealer); Paul Schneider (Pretty Bird); science author and producer Evan Schwartz; and Benedict Schwegler, vice president and chief scientist with Walt Disney Imagineering, will tinker with the idea.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
