This paper provides a description of the MediaEval 2016 "Emotional Impact of Movies" task. It continues builds on previous years' editions of the Affect in Multimedia Task: Violent Scenes Detection. However, in this year's task, participants are expected to create systems that automatically predict the emotional impact that video content will have on viewers, in terms of valence and arousal scores. Here we provide insights on the use case, task challenges, dataset and ground truth, task run requirements and evaluation metrics.
