New York, NY
DescriptionBlack and Latino Filmmakers' Coalition is a trade association that facilitates connections to resources, information and equipment for filmmakers of color. Our goal is to encourage the creation and success of high quality films. We aid in obtaining grants; establishing best practices guidelines; as well as lobbying local, state and federal government. BLFC cultivates filmmakers and promotes the independent film industry. BLFC needs interns to work in the production offices through every stage of creating films- foundational, pre-production, production and post-production. This is a comprehensive position because you will be privy to the construction of films from conception to completion. Interns will work closely with BLFC founder and staff learning multifarious skills- everything; wrangling talent, casting, script writing, grant acquisition, camera work, production managing, budget handling, copywriting, fostering relationships with decision makers, lobbying politicians, set design and lighting to name a few. Interns will learn to be versatile, quick-witted and resourceful.
