‘Kardia’ to score Sloan prize

Rynard's pic wins top honors at Hampston Film Fest

Writer-helmer Su Rynard’s “Kardia” has been tapped to receive the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation’s Sloan Feature Film Prize at the upcoming Hamptons Film Festival.

Award — which Sloan has handed out over the past six years at the fest to a feature that explores science and tech themes — comes with $25,000 in cash.

“Kardia,” produced by Paul Barkin of Toronto-based Alcina Pictures, centers on a pathologist (Mimi Kuzyk) who discovers that the experimental heart operation she underwent as a child has mysteriously linked her life with another person’s.

Pic was produced with participation from Telefilm Canada in association with Chum Television, the Movie Network, Movie Central and Rogers Telefund, as well as the Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Arts Council and Chalmers Arts Fellowships.

Past Sloan winners at the fest include the pics “Kinsey” and “Enigma.”

Event runs Oct. 19-23 in and around East Hampton, N.Y.
