What is the Fifth Floor Film Festival?

The Fifth Floor Film Festival is the annual Capstone Showcase for the Comm Arts Department. Previously just referred to as "Showcase", this year we've decided to step it up a notch! Since we can't have our regular celebration of student films in person, we have converted the festival to be completely online, premiering May 22nd. We hope that the online festival allows more family and friends to join us to enjoy films from our Graduating Seniors!

This Year's Showrunner, Nicholas Cerqua

For the first time, we have offered the role of Showrunner to a student as a way to complete your Capstone. Nicholas Cerqua took up the challenge this year! Producing, designing, organizing, and curating the Fifth Floor Film Festival is a lot for one student. Nicholas has put a lot of thought and effort into making this festival something special for everyone this year.
