TVM is McGill University's on-campus television station, run by volunteering students on a non-profit basis. TVMcGill gained its official status as a Student's Society of McGill University (SSMU) club in 1996. Succeeding its role as a movie-making club throughout the '90s, TVMcGill was officially founded in 2001 as a SSMU media service, broadcasting online and on closed-circuit television on campus. It regularly publishes stories relevant to the McGill community, whether it is news, arts, series or features. Recent stories include the coverage of the US elections from a Canadian student's perspective, the McGill Student's Society of McGill University Elections, the McGill Bachelorette and The Hot Plate. TVMcGill also organizes an annual Fokus Film Festival to promote and showcase student's films to the student community. Funding was mainly provided by SSMU, but after a student-initiated referendum motion that was successfully passed on March 11, 2010, TVMcGill is now supported directly from its own student funded fee. TVMcGill also participates in events such as SSUNS (Secondary Students United Nations Symposium) and McMUN (McGill Model United Nations), and receives support from external companies.
