2016 Animation Industry Day


Home to Canada’s largest arts school, Sheridan College has been teaching animation since 1971, and today offers a four-year bachelor’s degree in animation, as well as three post-graduate programs in computer animation, visual effects and character animation. Our graduates include Oscar nominees and winners who have helped fuel the surge in popularity of animated films by studios including Pixar, DreamWorks and Disney. Most recently, Animation Career Review named Sheridan as No. 1 among the top 100 animation schools in the world. Sheridan also offers an innovative Bachelor of Game Design and a cluster of high-demand graduate certificate programs in the gaming discipline.

The specific intent of the Industry Day event is to showcase the talents of our graduating class from the Digital Visual Effects, Computer Animation, Digital Character Animation and the Bachelor of Animation programs. This event invites industry experts to see what our graduates have to offer.
