2011 Retrospective: Looking Back on an Amazing Year

By VFS Web Team, on December 21, 2011

2011 has been a year of incredible accomplishments by VFS students and alumni.
For the first time, we saw a Writing for Film & Television student screenplay produced on a global stage with grad Seth Lochhead's Hanna. A team of Entertainment Business Management students took their Compendium short down to Screamfest LA and beat out seasoned pros for the Best Short Film award. And Digital Character Animation grad Rafael Cardenas took home his first Ariel Award - Mexico's answer to the Oscars.
As any regular reader of this blog knows, that's just the tip of the iceberg for VFS alumni achievements this year. Students and grads from all programs raised the bar even higher for the next wave of artists to come out of VFS, and we've pulled all of their stories together at vfs.com/2011.
Browse through the milestones of 2011, month by month. You'll see a special video feature, VFS Blog and In Focusmagazine stories, YouTube highlights, and what the wider VFS community had to say about it all.
Congratulations to everyone on an amazing year - and thanks for letting us tell your inspiring stories!
