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.

The venue for the Five College Student Film and Video Festival rotates each year. In 2020 the Festival was held on Friday Feb 21 at Amherst College's Stirn Auditorium. Updated information about this annual event can be found at this link: Five College Student Film and Video Festival
