This program is not currently accepting applications. However, you may be interested in our Honours Bachelor of Film and Television program.
ATVF integrates the practical, technical and creative aspects of television and film studies while providing direct, industry-relevant experience. You'll develop your creativity while gaining the specialized skills you need to bring your ideas and vision to life on the screen. You'll also acquire an understanding of new technologies and production methods, enabling you to stay current.
Our instructors and production facilities rank second to none among film schools in Canada. You'll work in professional surroundings, learn from practicing filmmakers with years of industry experience, and be immersed in the culture of the television and film industry — and, in just one academic year, you can become part of it.
In the technical areas, camera students will work in professional-style camera teams coached by industry gaffers, 1st ACs and cinematographers. Students shoot on both documentary and cinema cameras. Audio students are trained in software such as Pro Tools. Sheridan has two industry-style mixing theatres for audio mix playback. Students can screen their final films on a cinema-size screen with an industry-quality projector and a Dolby surround-sound environment.
Sheridan's Advanced Television and Film (ATVF) program provides a benchmark of excellence for film schools in Canada. Our student work consistently wins awards at film festivals in North America, and our camera students have won Canadian Society of Cinematographer "Best Student Cinematography" nominations in two of the last three years. Our graduates continue to achieve professional and artistic success with nominations for Oscars, Emmys, Canadian Screen Awards and ACE (Editing) awards.
We're unique because we train students to understand emerging technology and industrial workflows so our graduates are well placed to work anywhere notwithstanding technological change. New interactive courses keep students current.
ATVF is designed for students who already hold a college diploma or university degree, and for working professionals who want to upgrade their skill set. The program belongs to CILECT (Centre International de Liaison des Ecoles de Cinéma et de Télévision), an international consortium of the world's major television and film schools.
ATVF film work has been produced in studio and Toronto locations. Some student productions have been filmed in international locations in China, India, Europe and South America.
Graduates also find opportunities with broadcasters, suppliers and technology groups.
The program is three semesters in length, with classes from September to June and a self-directed placement in July and August.
In addition to the tuition/fees for this program, students should plan to spend approximately $2,000–$5,000 on materials and supplies, depending on their Master Class focus.
Sheridan Advanced Television and Film courses are held at the Trafalgar Road Campus in Oakville, Ontario.
