The Five College Student Film and Video Festival is an annual event featuring original films and videos by Five College students. Founded in 1994, the festival has become an important venue for film students to meet, collaborate, and share their productions with their peers and with the 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 a competitive event held at the end of the spring semester. Submissions are evaluated by a jury of students and film faculty from each of the Five Colleges. Selected works are shown at the festival and awards are given for the best works in designated categories.
