The Drownsman, produced by Christopher Giroux, premiered on August 2 at Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival, North America’s largest gathering of genre films. The film will be released on DVD in Canada soon by Anchor Bay Entertainment. Christopher, a 2009 Advanced Television and Film (ATFV) grad, received acclaim for his work on horror flick Antisocial which is sold on DVD, ITunes and Super Channel in Canada.

Other alumni who worked on The Drownsman: Mikelle Virey and Bai Zhou (both ATVF, 2012), David-Anthony Turineck and Sydney Cowper (both Media Arts 2014), and Amanda Wood (Cosmetic Techniques and Management, 2005).

Sheridan grads are also playing a big role in Christopher’s Antisocial 2 which is now in production by Black Fawn Films and Breakthrough Entertainment. Amanda Wood and David-Anthony Turineck are still part of the crew, along with Media Arts alumni Jeff Maher (2001), Carly Williams (2013) and Dan Glegg (2013).
