Alumni Events 2018

Oct 14
Antisocial Alumni Film Screening

Time 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Location Trafalgar - 1430 Trafalgar Rd., Oakville, Ontario

The Sheridan Alumni Office is proud to welcome producer and Sheridan graduate Christopher Giroux (Advanced Television and Film, 2009) on campus for an exclusive screening of Antisocial.

Antisocial had its Canadian premiere in December 2013 at the Carlton Theatre in Toronto.  The film was extended an extra week due to their sold out show on opening night.  The film is now on DVD and ITunes in Canada.

Produced by Giroux, the film takes place on December 31st when five university friends gather at a house party to ring in the New Year. Unbeknownst to them, an epidemic has erupted outside, causing outbreaks around the world. With nowhere else to turn, they barricade themselves indoors with only their phones, laptops, and other tech devices. They use their devices to research the possible cause of this outbreak. Information and video footage over flow their computers as they descend further into the cause and the ensuing chaos. As the virus spreads, the mood in the house changes from fear to paranoia. Who is safe? Who can they trust? Reality becomes blurred as they slowly discover the source of the virus causing the sickness...and there is no going back.

Christopher Giroux got his start in the film industry early. At age 15 he began volunteering for local production companies and by Grade 12 began doing the lighting and camera operation for genre films.  ​Right out of high school he opened his own production company called Red and White Productions.  He has worked with many high profile subjects including: all the major Canadian political parties, The Prime Minister, Tom Hanks, Dalton McGuinty, Oprah, L’Oreal Fashion Week and The United Nations, just to name a few.

Come meet Chris Giroux and the many Sheridan graduates that have worked on Antisocial
