Time 7:00 PM

Code 8 event header
Check out the Canadian film that went from an indie underdog to one of Netflix’s most popular movies of 2020.


Join Sheridan Alumni and our community partner, Oakville Festival of Film and Art (OFFA), for a digital screening of Code 8 – a sci-fi thriller starring cousins Robbie and Stephen Amell.

In Code 8, we step into a world where people with "special" abilities are living in poverty. Conner Reed (Robbie Amell) is a powerful young man struggling to pay for his ailing mother's medical treatment. To earn money, he joins a lucrative criminal world led by Garrett (Stephen Amell), who works for a drug lord (Greg Bryk).

Shot in Toronto, Code 8 features the work of 13 talented alumni. We are excited to bring back (on Zoom!) some of the grads who worked on the film, including Post Coordinator Darcy Smith (Advanced Television and Film ‘14), and Associate Producer Priscilla Galvez, (Advanced Television and Film ‘14). The pair will participate in a virtual Q&A after the film, along with special guests Director Jeff Chan and Producer Chris Pare.

Pop some popcorn, put your feet up, and enjoy your movie night at home!

The link for the film and Q&A will be sent in your confirmation email.

Date: December 9, 2020
Time: 7 p.m. (screening). Moderated Live Q&A will be available following the screening.
