Fifteen Sheridan alumni win Canadian Screen Awards

June 02, 2020

The talent and creativity of Sheridan alumni were recognized this past week with Canadian Screen Awards.

Fifteen grads won across ten categories, with many alums continuing the success they saw at last year’s awards.

“Although the world may be changing, the ingenuity and hard work of Sheridan grads remains a constant,” says Dr, Janet Morrison, Sheridan’s President and Vice Chancellor. “I’m thrilled to celebrate all of our alumni who won Canadian Screen Awards this year. Their success is an inspiration to our current students, who will chart their own paths and carve out their own accomplishments.”

The CSAs celebrate Canadian productions and talent in front of the camera and behind-the-scenes in film, television and digital media. Traditionally, the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television presents the CSAs during a series of events that culminate in a gala in Toronto. This year, following the cancellation of all Canadian Screen Week events due to the COVID-19 pandemic, celebrations were held virtually, with presentations live-streamed on the Canadian Academy Facebook, Twitter and YouTube channels.
