Graduate student researchers are competing to earn top spot in McMaster’s inaugural GradFlix Final Showcase, screening on YouTube Premieres at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, March 30.
For the past several weeks, PhD and Masters students from across the faculties have been crafting one-minute films describing their research. GradFlix allows for creativity on the part of the filmmakers – students can use animations, original music, dance, poetry, even humour – while still focusing on improving communication skills with non-specialist audiences.
Films were submitted to the School of Graduate Studies and preliminary adjudication has taken place. Twelve filmmakers will compete in the 2021 GradFlix final:
During the Showcase, all 12 films will screen, winners will be announced, and viewers will have an opportunity to vote for the People’s Choice award.
