The Burning Season Banner

In collaboration with the Oakville Festivals of Film and Art (OFFA), Sheridan Alumni invites you to join us for a screening of The Burning Season, followed by a Q&A with Sheridan graduates and special guests.

Alena and Tom arrive at Luna Lake for JB and Poppy’s wedding. But JB’s wedding night ends in a drug-fuelled haze and with both couples destroyed, as his long-secret affair with Alena is finally exposed and lives are changed forever. The Burning Season begins at the end and then takes us backwards through time, each previous summer revealing deeper insight into their mysteriously intense connection.

The story unfolds like a conundrum, challenging our preconceived ideas about the characters, tracking the affair over seven tumultuously sexy summers, and culminating in a surprising revelation that recontextualizes everything we thought we knew.

Join us after the film for a live Q&A with Sheridan alumni who worked on the film: Executive Producer, Andrew Hunt (Media Arts ‘91); and Re-Recording Mixer and Supervising Sound Editor, Matthew Harrold (Media Arts ‘05). They’ll be joined by Actor and Writer, Jonas Chernick; as well as Director, Sean Garrity (tbc).
