A Rooftop Films internship is a great opportunity for film, arts administration and nonprofit management students as well as young filmmakers: learn how a nonprofit film festival works and see hundreds of great movies. Individuals would work with members of the programming team to assist in the pre-screening and rating of film submissions, and would participate in the overall programming process.

We welcome undergraduate and graduate students, (film education, production and/or film studies a plus). Candidates should have excellent organizational and communication skills, and an enthusiasm for film criticism and/or curation. This internship is an excellent opportunity to participate in the programming process of Rooftop Films, and a great way to learn the inner workings of a film festival.

Candidates would be expected to average at least two days a week in the office, but generally the more time you can commit the better.

Internship tasks can include:
+ Tracking and requesting new independent films
+ Contacting and corresponding with filmmakers
+ Organizing off-season film screenings
+ Fundraising and grant work
+ Organizing and maintaining film databases
+ Marketing/Outreach/Publicity
+ Audio and video tech work
+ Writing: including the Rooftop blog, social media, press releases and website content
+ General office work
+ Anything else you might be interested in-we want you to see how we work

Candidates should have good experience working with Microsoft Office (particularly Excel) and experience with Filemaker, HTML, design programs or video editing software is a plus.

To apply please send a cover letter, resume and references to: intern@rooftopfilms.com. Please include “Fall Internship” in the subject line of your email. Applications are due no later than September 12, 2014.
