The Cinema internship is open to students or recent graduates with a passion for documentary film who are looking to get hands on experience and broaden their understanding of operating a non-profit, independent film house in New York City. Interns will assist with the day-to-day running of the cinema including supporting our promotional effort in maintaining and enhancing our social media presence as well as more formal & direct outreach and networking within the film community. 

Please note that we no longer offer a production internship, but qualified candidates may have the opportunity to work on video materials for internal and promotional purposes at the Cinema. 

Requires a passionate interest in documentary films and documentary film exhibition.
