Interns at Kartemquin will have the opportunity to train with an internationally recognized non-profit media arts organization and learn how social issue documentary films are created, from research and development to distribution and outreach. Interns collaborate and train with a team of filmmakers who have produced emotionally compelling, challenging, and socially relevant documentaries for over forty-five years.
Internship duties comprise a healthy mix of office administration, business and finance administration, and assistance with current documentary projects. Project assistance takes many forms and can include: production work; post-production work; project management; project research; grant research/applications; and film festival submissions.
Autumn and spring term internships are part-time, unpaid and run approximately 16-18 weeks. Summer internships are also part-time, unpaid and run about 9 weeks.
Interns will be expected to work approximately 16-20 hours a week, preferably spending at least one full day a week at Kartemquin. All interns will schedule their time during normal business hours, 9:30-6:00, Monday-Friday (except when assisting at special events and shoots that take place outside of regular hours).
Specific tasks may include, but are not limited to:
*Assisting in area documentary shoots
