These internships are designed to give students and emerging professionals insight into programming for an international film festival. Interns will assist programmers overseeing our six submission categories (Experimental, Music Video, Short Documentary, Feature Documentary, Short Narrative, and Feature Narrative) with all aspects of the programming process. Major responsibilities include screening submissions and detailed film evaluation via our online submission platform FilmFreeway. Interns will have access to private filmworks and must keep everything confidential. Flexible hours, at least 20 hours per week. Interns will be assigned one or two specific film categories to screen. The dates of this internship are from January 10 to April 27. For your time and work, BlackStar can offer college credit or a small stipend ($500), and upon successful completion of internship, a BlackStar 2022 festival pass.
