Storytelling the main feature in GradFlix final
From concept to final cut, the curtain is ready to lift on this year’s McMaster GradFlix Final Showcase.
Join us for the 2022 GradFlix Final Showcase Premiere on YouTube, Tuesday, April 5, at 3 p.m. ET.
Doctoral and masters students from across the faculties have been flexing their creative muscles, crafting one-minute films describing their research. GradFlix allows video-makers to tell their story using animations, original music, dance, poetry, even humour – while still focusing on improving communication skills with non-specialist audiences.
The top three GradFlix winners will receive cash prizes and the Dean’s Award for Excellence in Communicating Graduate Research.
Preliminary adjudication is over and now, 12 filmmakers from across the university are anxiously awaiting the 2022 GradFlix final. Competitors are:
- Alexe Bernier, Social Sciences
- Ashutosh (Ash) Thakar, Health Sciences
- Calvin Zhu, Engineering
- Creighton Avery, Social Sciences
- Fazle Rabbi, Health Sciences
- Geneva Smith, Engineering
- Maddie Brockbank, Social Sciences
- Megan Karabin, Humanities
- Rachael Finnerty, Science
- Sergio Raez-Villanueva, Health Sciences
- Stacey Mark, Engineering
- Susan Marsh-Rollo, Science
All 12 films will be screened during the Showcase and our winners will be announced. During the broadcast, viewers will have an opportunity to vote for the People’s Choice award.
All 2022 GradFlix submissions will be available for viewing on our McMaster SGS YouTube channel after this year’s showcase screening.
