The Film Studies Program believes that internships are an important part of the academic experience and can add important development opportunities for students pursuing careers in any aspect of film production and film studies. Currently we have a few local internships set up that students can apply for each term. More about our local internship opportunities can be found on our local internship page.

Also, the Film Studies Program is striving to help students obtain summer internships as a part of their academic career and professional development.

Students who are interested in pursuing internships over the summer should contact Matt Swift – Film Studies Program Coordinator – to set up an appointment.

The Film Studies Program offers financial support for students who obtain internships in the film industry through the Brian Mehling Endowment Fund for Film Industry Internships. If you would like to donate to this fund and support student internships click here.

An annual competition will be held to award funds to students who apply. Students who wish to apply for Mehling Film Industry Internship Support can find more information by clicking here.

Below we have posted a video and some materials from our internship workshop online for students to watch and use both for obtaining internships and as good advice for applying for jobs as well.
