For 50 years, the vision and passion of Five Towns College founders and educators, Stanley and Lorraine Cohen, continue to be realized in the work of young filmmakers, musicians, visual and performing artists.

Known as Long Island’s College for Creative Students, the college promotes and celebrates purposeful and effectual art from diverse perspectives, and is pleased to expand its reach to the community.

To honor the work of both Five Towns College and Long Island high school students, the college is pleased to host The Long Island Media Arts Show. The Juried Exhibition will include work in Film, Photography, 2D Digital Art, and Animation. Student filmmakers and artists from the college and community are encouraged to push their creativity and skills to new levels, and submit work to be considered.

The Conference also features demonstrations and workshops with industry professionals.

The event promises to be a true manifestation of talent, creativity, and artistic energy.
