Sheridan rolls out the red carpet to honour alumni at the Oscars

February 17, 2015

Sheridan is rolling out the red carpet to honour alumni at the Oscars. Three of the five films nominated for Best Animated Feature were directed by animators who studied at Sheridan. Among the films nominated is How to Train Your Dragon 2, written and directed by Dean DeBlois; The Boxtrolls, directed by Graham Annable; and Big Hero 6, directed by Chris Williams.

Sheridan will host an Oscar night party on Sunday, February 22 at the Trafalgar Road Campus in Oakville. Students, alumni, faculty and staff are invited to watch the Oscar telecast at The Marquee Pub and cheer on Sheridan’s three nominees. The free event will begin with red carpet coverage at 7:00pm and will feature prizes, games and other activities.

The Oscar party is part of Sheridan’s month-long celebrations on campus, including screenings of each nominated film, student art activities based on the films and various hallway festivities. Alumni, students and staff are sharing all the awards season excitement through #SheridanOscars.
