Looking up at the stars has long captivated the human imagination. And storytellers have popularized dramatic, seemingly outlandish notions of planetary exploration, parallel universes, black holes, and wormholes. But are they that far-fetched? Is space-time stranger than fiction? Explore the intersection of imagination, science, and storytelling with an eclectic group: astrophysicist and writer Janna Levin (Barnard College/Columbia University), writer/actor Brit Marling (Another Earth, I, Origins), writer Jonathan Nolan (Interstellar, Memento, The Dark Knight Rises), engineer Adam Steltzner (NASA Jet Propulsion Lab) and moderator Paula Apsell (Senior Executive Producer, NOVA). Supported by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

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.
