Filmmaker Master Classes
In addition to Q&A sessions and panels during the Dallas International Film Festival, DF/DIFF hosts master classes with filmmakers, composers, producers and actors at participating Film Labs high schools.
Interns will help coordinate both the annual film festival (The Dallas International Film Festival) and year-round Dallas Film screenings and events. In doing so, students gain customer service, verbal and written skills, and they learn to make quick decisions and resolve problems quickly and efficiently. They become familiar with other Dallas industry groups, venues and tools that will help them start their career in the film industry (or business in general).
Interns will rotate working in Programming, Membership, Education and Community Outreach, Sponsorship, Special Events and Publications. In general, they will learn about non-profit management, membership retention, customer service, administrative skills, marketing and customer service. All positions include researching, assisting staff departments, and attending Dallas Film events and screenings. Interns must be enrolled in college and able to commit to working 12 hours a week. All majors are encouraged to apply.
