Internships

There are a wide variety of internships that are of interest to film studies students. In addition to opportunities in film and television production companies and at film festivals, many companies, non-profits, museums, archives, and libraries offer internships in their production and communications divisions. They provide excellent opportunities for film studies students to build upon their classroom learning with experiences in many aspects of visual and cultural production. Students who are interested in securing internships should consult with their faculty advisor and visit Career Services for more information.

Recent film studies internships include:
Roserock Studios (Los Angeles)
Gran Vista Productions (Los Angeles)
Far Hills Pictures (Los Angeles)
The American Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences (NYC Office)
South Carolina Film Commission
Virginia Film Commission
Hamptons International Film Festival
Anthology Film Archives (NYC)
Film Forum (NYC)
Campbell Studios (Philadelphia, PA)
The Firestarter Group (Richmond VA)

Additionally, film studies majors are strongly encouraged to apply for internships with one of the many film festivals and film series offered in the greater Richmond area. Every year the French Film Festival and the Latin American Film Festival even have on-campus positions that are open to interested students throughout the year.

Shorter work experiences—anything from one day to two weeks—can also be found on films and other media being produced in the Richmond area. See the film studies coordinator for more information.
