APPLICATIONS FOR FALL INTERNS NOW OPEN
The NYTVF is seeking highly motivated and enthusiastic fall interns to assist with the preparation and execution of the 2013 New York Television Festival, slated for October 21 - 26, in Manhattan.
Internship Description: Interns will work closely with Directors of all Festival departments in the lead-up to and execution of the 9th annual Festival, which is anticipated to include 500+ events, including screenings, premieres, panels and Festival-facilitated meetings. Candidates with varied entertainment interests are welcome, though those with particular interest or experience in promotion and marketing, writing, film/television critique, event management (PA), and social media are of particular interest.
Internship Requirements: Ideal candidates should be college students, recent graduates, or students enrolled in a graduate program with a strong interest in the world of television, an understanding and appreciation of non-scripted television formats, a working knowledge of Microsoft Word and Excel, and access to a laptop. Previous office experience is preferred, and previous festival experience is a plus. As part of the internship, candidates are required to attend and work at the Festival as the conclusion of their internship. The Festival is scheduled for October 21 - 26, 2013.
Candidates should be available for either part-time or full-time positions, with a minimum of 20 hours/week. Start and end dates are negotiable pending availability, though candidates with availability from August 19 to November 15 are preferred. As this internship is unpaid, students can register the internship for academic credit with their college or university, though this is not required. Additionally, a daily food/transportation stipend will be provided.
