Sheridan will host a second film screening in honour of alumnus Graham Annable’s Oscar nomination for the film The Boxtrolls. It will be held this Friday in the SCAET Theatre and prior to the film students will be creating their own box-trolls starting at 5:00 pm.

Sheridan held a screening for alumnus Dean DeBlois last Friday, who received an Oscar nomination as Best Director – Animated Feature for his film How to Train Your Dragon 2.

Both films (How to Train Your Dragon 1 and 2), directed and written by DeBlois, were screened and enjoyed by over 150 animation students. Along with Annable and DeBlois, Chris Williams also received an Oscar Nomination in the same category for his work on the film Big Hero 6.

Congratulations to all three for their tremendous hard work and we encourage everyone to come out to the SCAET Theatre this Friday to celebrate.
