A future to Infinity
Unlocking the limitless potential when the arts and sciences INTERSECT.
Headquartered in Los Angeles and New Orleans, Infinity Arts Foundation, amplifies and supports the high-achieving work of remarkable people, across disciplines, in science and discovery – commonly referred to as S.T.E.A.M. We do this through our two signature programs – The Infinity Film Fund and our Infinity STEAM-in- Residency
As an arts incubator, Infinity Arts Foundation's core mission is to encourage the development of films inspired by true stories set in the world of S.T.E.A.M. With the residency program working as a "lab", it will serve as a home for artistic development and scientific research. Infinity Arts Foundation will look to engage filmmakers to focus on stories that ordinarily would be ignored by Hollywood. The challenge traditionally for filmmakers lies in their ability to navigate the financial realities of Hollywood while remaining authentic. This is where Infinity Arts Foundation can play a key role, providing infrastructure and support to films that otherwise would not fit the Hollywood mold. Infinity Arts Foundation will support aspiring filmmakers to accomplish their dreams free of compromise, and in so doing help inspire the next generation of artists in all disciplines.
INFINITY INSPIRITING IMAGINATION
Infinity Artists-in-Residence Program fosters creative, intellectual and professional growth for emerging and established S.T.E.A.M. professionals. By merging contemporary art with the sciences, the Infinity Arts Foundation artist residents will help bring the transformative power of art to the surrounding neighborhoods and beyond.
Our Creative Lab will be set in an 1832 Townhouse, as home and business in one of the National Register of Historic buildings known as JULIA ROW and THE THIRTEEN SISTERS. The 8,000 square foot building is in the heart of the New Orleans Arts District. It will be a place where artists from all different disciplines of S.T.E.A.M. can converge for periods of work, reflection, and artistic discovery to inspire creative breakthroughs. Infinity Arts Foundation will have Artist-In-Residence facilities, work space, and a first floor gallery where artists can show works and where IAF can host larger symposiums, conferences, and events.
In 2022, Infinity Arts Foundation will provide artists from around the world dedicated time, space, and resources to conduct research and to create new work.

Infinity Arts Foundation will bring true stories to life, celebrating the lives of outliers and innovators who have made substantial contributions to the world of S.T.E.A.M. By telling these important stories in an uncomprising fashion, the films can serve as a tool for educational outreach and inspiration for the next generation. WIth the “lab’ serving as an incubator, Infinity Arts Foundation will be able to finance its own slate of films by providing the equity portion of their budgets using nonprofit funding. The return on the investment from these films will help to fund the creative lab, which in turn will develop more stories, continuing Infinity Arts Foundation's mission for years to come.
With the release of the Man Who Knew Infinity film there ran a simultaneous impact campaign. The Foundation "The Spirit of Ramanujan" emerged to discover outlier maths talent and pair them with grants and mentorship around the world. It is our hope that for each of the films Infinity Arts Foundation produces that similar impact campaigns can be run to inspire others.
WHY INFINITY FILMS
A different approach, using a new method of creativity.
We are a tool for educational outreach using film as a medium to focus on storytelling about S.T.E.A.M.
Infinity Film's stories have the potential to shift cultural perspectives and increase understanding.
Infinity Film's stories will inspire, educate, and promote social equity.
The existence of Infinity Films is important at this critical juncture when Arts in America are at extreme risk.
We will tell our stories without commercial or cultural compromises.

Join Infinity Arts Foundation in supporting creativity.
“While the importance of science is not always apparent in our daily lives, there is no doubt that science is becoming increasingly important for the challenges that mankind faces. Science is the foundation for our future, and to this end I am an avid supporter of films which provide a platform that cultivate the culture and importance of science.”
