Film Department Intern

Bookmark This


The Film Department at Austin Film Festival is in charge of programming films for the festival, processing and handling entries in the film competition, checking films in and out to screeners, and helping to market AFF to students, filmmakers. We also collaborate with the Marketing Department to market screenings to the public for both year-round-programming events and screenings during the festival.
An apprenticeship is an opportunity to learn a trade or gain experience in a desired field. An apprentice could be a student, recent graduate, or someone looking to change career paths.
Both internships and apprenticeships consist of a regular weekly work schedule within a particular AFF department and are designed to expand participants professional knowledge and experience. Apprenticeships, unlike internships, are not for official school credit.


Interns will be required to work a regular schedule within business hours (Monday to Friday 10 am to 6 pm). A prospective intern should be comfortable with computers, especially Word and Excel, efficient, punctual, outgoing, and good with people. There will be a variety of tasks which change weekly including helping with mail-outs, maintaining databases, coordinating and marketing advance screenings, and researching filmmakers and film websites.


We are looking for a self-starter and a problem-solver who is interested in film and wants to work with a nationally-renown film festival at the ground level. You will be watching film, thinking about film and interacting with filmmakers. … Also you will be doing data entry. And running errands. But it will all be in the name of film.
