internships & jobs
Intern and volunteer positions are structured around the college semester system. Positions are available for Spring, Summer, and Fall in both Production and Marketing/Administration. Internships and volunteer positions are unpaid, but we do offer credit for currently enrolled students. Interns do not need to be registered students.
Production Internship
6-12 Credits
(2-4 days a week, 9am-5pm)
Production interns work directly with MEF producers and editors on a variety of tasks assisting in the completion of both daily and long-term operations. These include media collection and research, converting media to an assortment of different formats, transcribing, maintaining our extensive in-house news log and other responsibilities. We are looking for people with depth, diligence, communication skills and the ability to collaborate. Experience using Macs and Mac-based programs (such as Final Cut Pro, DVD Studio Pro, and/or Photoshop) is a plus.
Marketing/Administration Internship
3-12 Credits
(8 hours a week minimum commitment. Flexible schedule between the hours of 9 AM – 5 PM, Monday through Friday.)
Marketing interns gain experience in various aspects of market and distribution research, outreach, and public relations. Marketing interns assist in projects such as monitoring and posting to our social media sites, creating and assembling press kits, developing and updating content for the website, sending out new video releases to reviewers, submitting our films to conferences and film festivals, and proofreading print and web materials. On the administration side, interns will assist in all aspects of sales and distribution, and help with other front-office or finance operations.
Desirable candidates will be curious, organized, self-directed, and able to multi-task. Strong writing and communication skills are essential. Familiarity with social media and basic HTML is a plus.
