The Luminaries is a film festival that celebrates the culmination of the Film/Video Division’s academic year. Faculty and students throw this event annually in conjunction with the Mass Communication, Theatre Arts and the Audio Recording Technology Divisions. This event gives recognition to the hard work of the Five Towns College Film/Video students. Enjoy these films that showcase, celebrate and honor the creativity of our students!
In May 2011, the Five Towns College Film Festival was renamed, “The Luminaries” in honor of Professor Sol Negrin, ASC, one of the Film/Video Division’s founding members. The late, great and esteemed Cinematographer and Educator brought a true work ethic, commitment to the craft, and dedication to the student body. In doing so, he helped many alumni get established in the field and climb the ladder to success in the Film and Television industry. Sol Negrin’s legacy lives on through The Luminaries and in various iterations of the Film/Video Division and continues to be a defining staple of the College.
