Call for Student Applicants: Robert Flaherty Film Seminar



The Five College Film Council is proud to announce a new summer program for Five College students in partnership with the Robert Flaherty Film Seminar. With a storied history dating back to 1955, the Flaherty Film Seminar is the longest continuously running film event in North America. This annual, week-long seminar is devoted to non-fiction film and media. The Flaherty brings together filmmakers, artists, curators, academics, film enthusiasts and media professionals for a curated program of films in an intimate, immersive environment. Participants gather for a communal experience that includes housing, meals, social hours, and special events. Each day of the seminar is organized around at least three screening sessions followed by discussion.


Our new 5C Flaherty Program aims to foster learning and networking opportunities for students from constituencies that are underrepresented in leadership positions in film and media. We are currently seeking applicants who are interested in attending this year’s seminar, which will be held June 17-23 at Colgate University in Hamilton, NY. 


For more details about this program, including eligibility and the application procedure, please see the attached document. Applications are due via email to by Monday, March 20.
