Want to get more involved? Bryn Mawr Film Institute is always looking for exceptional college students and high school juniors and seniors to intern during the school year and over the summer. Internships are unpaid (with perks) and can be done for credit through the student's institution. Scheduling is flexible.

Interns typically assist in the business office with public relations, event promotion, and community outreach, depending on the individual's skills and interests and the needs of the organization. One intern each summer is selected to assist the instructor of the Summer Filmmaking Workshop.

To apply for an internship, please use the website submission form. Include the name of your institution, year in school, and contact information (email and phone number) in the comments field.
