Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Honor Society is proud to announce the winners of the 2022 STEM Art and Film Festival. Held virtually on November 6, the festival celebrated the intersection of science and art through visual and performing arts that are related to or inspired by science, technology, engineering, and math. Artists submitted and showcased their work in a virtual exhibit hall and entries consisted of visual art, digital art, films, documentaries, animations, and performance art.

The virtual festival was open to the public and held in conjunction with Sigma Xi's International Forum on Research Excellence (IFoRE). Event attendees could visit the virtual exhibit hall throughout the conference and vote for the People's Choice Award winners. Additionally, a panel of judges evaluated submissions and a virtual award ceremony was held Sunday evening, on the final day of the conference.
