Interns will have many opportunities to meet and network with well-connected and up-and-coming industry professionals of all levels, including festival directors, project managers, graphic designers, web developers, filmmakers, distributors, and members of the press.
Interns will work scheduled hours at the festival’s year-round office in Woodstock, on-site for special events and during festival operations, or partially remotely. Ideal internship experiences are between 120-160 hours.
