Internship Opportunity: Screenplay Competition/Programming Department

The Nantucket Film Festival is looking for a limited number of enthusiastic and dedicated interns interested in working for school credit, starting in January 2012 and leading up to the Festival, June 20-24, 2012.

The internship will involve planning for the 17th Annual Nantucket Film Festival and will provide hands on experience in arts administration, festival programming, and festival production. Duties include: assisting the staff with Festival's call for film and script entries, manage film and script submissions, screening and reading committee coordination, outreach, and general office duties.

Knowledge of FileMaker Pro and design software, as well as some familiarity with web design, is a plus.

The time commitment is flexible, but interns will be expected to work between 10-20 hours per week, from January to May 2012, at the Festival's New York office.
