An internship is any official or formal program that provides practical experience in an occupation or profession. It is done in exchange for school credit (usually as a graduation requirement) from an accredited college or university.
We also have opportunities for the same positions to those who want to volunteer their time for the festival in exchange for credentials and to gain creditable experience in an occupation or profession in the film or event planning industry.
