Sidney Clifton

Senior Vice President, Animation and Mixed Media, The Jim Henson Company and Founder of the Clifton House

Emmy-nominated producer Sidney Clifton has over twenty years of experience as an executive producer and development executive of animated and live-action content across multiple platforms.

Sidney serves as Jim Henson Company’s Senior Vice President of Animation and Mixed Media, and as Senior Consultant with Black Women Animate. As a mentor and recruiter, she has been a featured speaker at colleges and universities across North America.

Her passion for developing and supporting the underserved community of writers, artists, storytellers and creators was the catalyst for her launching The Clifton House; a writer’s and artist’s workshop and retreat space centered at her childhood home in Baltimore Maryland—the home she shared with her five siblings and parents, educator/activist Fred J. Clifton and National Book Award winning poet and author Lucille Clifton.
