Audiovisual formats play a great role in current communication. They have been used as a tool for the dissemination of scientific discourse in the form of documentaries or popular science series. However, the world of science has undergone an epistemological turn where values such as the objectivity of knowledge and its universality have been called into question.

What does this change mean for the audiovisual communication of science? This raises the hypothesis that this epistemic expansion goes hand in hand with the narrative expansion of science communication, where the fiction-truth dichotomy loses importance. Therefore, a fragmentary review of examples of science communication where communication formats have been expanded is proposed. As a case study we propose the horror short film "Fagos", a piece developed within the framework of the Scifilmit hackathon, a Swiss initiative that had an edition in 2021 in Bogota, Colombia.

From this, a second iteration is proposed with a new methodology to be applied in Colombian universities. Finally, it is concluded that the research-creation model is the perfect framework for a more holistic scientific research that includes audiovisual communicative elements from the beginning.
