Questions? Email info@woodstockfilmfestival.org

**PLEASE NOTE this is not a film production job, but many of our interns have gone on to get internships and jobs in production because of the connections and expertise that they acquired at the Woodstock Film Festival.

Ideal internship experiences are between 120-200 all-time hours. During this time, scheduled hours will be a hybrid model: partly at the festival’s year-round office in Woodstock and remotely if needed. Also, on-site for special events.

The Woodstock Film Festival is committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion and strongly encourages women, persons of color, and members of the LGBTQ+ community to apply.

D&H Canal Historical Society Seeking Events and Marketing Intern for Spring ’22

The D&H Canal Historical Society is dedicated to preserving the history of the D&H Canal through a museum, educational programs, archives, and Five Locks Walk, a National Historic Landmark. We are currently renovating a stone tavern built in 1797 that sits along the towpath of the canal in High Falls as the new D&H Canal Museum and Mid-Hudson Visitor Center. This new space will hold exhibits that function as a springboard for programs and conversations with the public. While the museum will maintain its important collections, new interactive exhibit elements that highlight STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) topics will help bring history to life and create a vibrant experience with a focus on family audiences. Using hands-on interactives, historical images, documents, and artifacts–coupled with digital/multimedia elements and storytelling–the new Visitor Center and D&H Canal Museum will answer big questions about where, who, what, when, and how the environment and the canal have shaped High Falls and the region today.
