This paper provides a description of the MediaEval 2015 "Affective Impact of Movies Task", which is running for the fifth year, previously under the name "Violent Scenes Detection". In this year's task, participants are expected to create systems that automatically detect video content that depicts violence, or predict the affective impact that video content will have on viewers. Here we provide insights on the use case, task challenges, data set and ground truth, task run requirements and evaluation metrics.
