GRADflix was created by Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs at the University of Waterloo in 2018 in response to a need for research communication opportunities that developed skills outside of public speaking. The GRADflix competition at the University of Waterloo continues to grow and has expanded to six other Ontario institutions!  

The University of Waterloo encourages other institutions to implement their own GRADflix competitions and is happy to support this process! Here you will find all the information, resources and templates you need to support you in launching your own competition. The following documents and files are available for download:
