Weekends is a 2017 American animated film.[1] Created and directed by Trevor Jimenez, a Canadian-born animator for Pixar, the film depicts Jimenez's own childhood experience as a child of divorced parents, who regularly spent the week living with his mother in Hamilton, Ontario while spending weekends with his father in Toronto.[1]

Jimenez made the film through the co-op program at Pixar, which permits employees to use some company resources to make their own independent short films.[1]

In January 2019, the film was announced as a nominee for the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film at the 91st Academy Awards.[2]
