INTENTION

INAUGURATE

Infinity Arts Foundation leverages the power of story, artistic expression and collaboration in the areas of science, technology, engineering, art and math, primarily referred to as S.T.E.A.M. - to amplify the profound connection and impact it has upon world where we find ourselves. We fulfill our mission in two distinct ways: The Infinity Film Fund and our Artists in Residency Program.

 

Infinity Arts Foundation is unique in that it is the first of its kind to house a film fund and artist in residency program dedicated to S.T.E.A.M related projects. Our goal is to both maximize exposure of the remarkable life stories of leaders in the area, past and present, while also providing a much-needed sanctuary for greater exploration into the investigative process, collaboration and solitude through our artist in residency program.

WHAT WE DO

The Infinity Film Fund produces and develops films, for large and small screen, to entertain, educate and inspire audiences of all ages and backgrounds about the lives and projects of remarkable iconoclasts, trailblazers and luminaries who have transformed modern society through S.T.E.A.M.

 

The Artists in Residency program fosters connection and collaboration among those in S.T.E.A.M today to ignite further curiosity and/or offer the necessary solitude required to complete a project. Located in a historic estate in New Orleans, the innovative program is a sanctuary for emerging and existing artists, filmmakers and scientists. It’s a place for them to connect and explore their artistic and investigative process in a stress-free environment without interruption. Because of this, they are able to push beyond their previous limits to access and expand their imagination to secure groundbreaking discoveries and creations in a nurturing atmosphere. 

MEET THE TEAM

 

 

 

"It’s a vital time to support filmmakers telling stories that go beyond passive entertainment to engage the mind as well as the heart. History, education, science, humanity – these areas are underserved by the marketplace and in need of dedicated financial and communal support. "
