The Five College Film Council works to coordinate the study of film and video at all five campuses.
The members of the Council include faculty members drawn from a number of disciplines ranging from foreign languages to literature, history and media studies. They meet regularly to exchange information about courses as well as faculty appointments, and plan a coordinated approach to meeting common needs for instruction.
The Council sponsors an undergraduate film and media studies conference and an annual student film and video festival, both held during the spring semester.
The Five College FC Film Studies Announcements email list is open to faculty, staff and students interested in Film Studies to share announcements and information. Visit the Five Colleges Film Studies Announcements page to subscribe or unsubscribe.
Note that if you don't see classes from all campuses currently listed, they will appear as the campuses release their course schedules for the semester. The five campuses release their schedules on different dates. Visit this page for specific dates.
The Five College Film Festival seeks short films of 20 minutes or less from students across the Five Colleges.* The festival will be held in-person for the first time in four years on Saturday, April 1. The deadline for submissions is Monday, February 27th. Awards and prizes will be granted to winning films in three categories: fiction, documentary, and experimental.
Contact us at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
*All students currently enrolled at Amherst College, Hampshire College, Mount Holyoke College, Smith College and the University of Massachusetts Amherst are welcome to submit films, regardless of your major. Work by recent graduates of one of the Five Colleges may also be submitted, as long as it was produced while enrolled.
The Five College Film Festival’s mission is to share the stories of students from across the Five Colleges through the medium of film. We hope that all students, regardless of background or experience with filmmaking, share their stories.
