Broadcasting online and on closed circuit televisions across campus, TVMcGill is the university’s outlet for student television and film media. Succeeding its role as a movie-making club throughout the ’90s, TVMcGill was officially founded in 2001 as a SSMU media service. The organization has grown impressively over the past decade, acquiring a reputation for in-depth news coverage and innovative, exciting new programming. Winners of the 2003 and 2006 Service of the Year Award, as well as the 2005, 2006, and 2008 Website of the Year Award, TVMcGill has garnered numerous accolades for its work. It regularly publishes stories relevant to the McGill community, whether it is news, arts, series or features. TVMcGill also organizes an annual Fokus Film Festival to promote and showcase student’s films to the student community. In the past, funding was mainly provided by SSMU, but after a student-initiated referendum motion that was successfully passed in March 2010, TVMcGill is now supported directly from its own student funded fee.
