About the Festival

Founded in 1994, the Five College Student Film and Video Festival is an annual event featuring original films and videos by Five College students. The festival has become an important venue for film students to meet, collaborate and share their productions with their peers and with the Five College film community.


Students from each of the Five Colleges organize the festival with the assistance of a Student Director from the host college and a faculty advisor. The festival, which is sponsored by the Five College Film Council, is held each year during the Spring semester. Submissions are evaluated by a jury of students and faculty members from each campus. Selected works are shown at the festival and awards are given.


Prizes will be awarded to winning films and videos selected from the submitted pool and screened at the festival. This year, prizes for outstanding work will be given titles based on jury evaluation (i.e. "most outstanding ____"), reasons for their selection will be provided, and one will be named best of festival!
