This paper provides a description of the MediaEval 2018 “Emotional Impact of Movies task". It continues to build on last year’s edition, integrating the feedback of previous participants. The goal is to create systems that automatically predict the emotional impact that video content will have on viewers, in terms of valence, arousal and fear. Here we provide a description of the use case, task challenges, dataset and ground truth, task run requirements and evaluation metrics.
