Exciting internship opportunities are available to Film Studies Certificate students. Internships give students a chance to gain concrete experience in different areas of the film industry and film culture. Students with an internship will register for FIL 4940 and will consult with the Director to discuss goals, responsibilities and the amount of course credits each specific internship is worth.
In addition to rotating internships within the film studies certificate program, several community organizations, including the Miami Jewish Film Festival and FilmGate, have a strong relationship with the FIU film studies program. As well, local filmmakers often seek interns interested in hands-on learning about pre-production, production and/or post-production processes. Students are also encouraged to seek out internships with film festivals, filmmakers, and other local organizations or businesses involved with the moving image (yes, even game design!) and to consult with the director of the film studies program to see how these positions can fit into their course of study at FIU.
Specific Information about various internship opportunities will appear here as they become available. Please check back often.
Coral Gables Art Cinema
Marketing & Graphic Design Intern
The Coral Gables Art Cinema is seeking applicants for a marketing & graphic design intern. This is an opportunity to gain hands-on experience working on marketing campaigns for a nationally renowned non- profit institution as well as providing insight into the inner workings of a small business and art-house movie theater. If you love alternative, indie and foreign films, this is the place to be. This internship is unpaid. The days and hours are flexible but must take place Monday through Friday during business hours (9 am to 5 pm).
Miami Jewish Film Festival
The Miami Jewish Film Festival is enthusiastic about bringing on interns from the FIU student body. Many film certificate students have held these internships over the past several years, and their experiences have always been terrific, in part because the festival staff (which now includes a former FIU intern) are generous, knowledgeable and organized. An information packet for the 2015-16 season's internship opportunities appears in the link below.
