Internship Opportunities

About the Program

Our interns will serve a crucial role in putting on Indy Shorts and/or the Heartland International Film Festival. At Heartland Film, we offer a fun and informative work environment where students can gain valuable experience within the nonprofit and entertainment industries. During the Film Festivals, students will be able to network with filmmakers and industry professionals from all over the world.

Our internship positions are ideal for students currently enrolled at an accredited college/university who are looking to obtain school credit, or recent graduates within one year. Some positions are also available as unpaid internships. Our spring internships run from January-May; Summer internships run from May – early August; our Fall internships run from mid-August – early November (with some exceptions depending on the position). Interns are expected to work a schedule of 12-20 hours per week with the potential to work more hours during the Film Festivals.
