Internship Opportunities

About the Program

Heartland Film interns will serve a crucial role in putting on the Academy Award-qualifying Indy Shorts (July 20-25, 2021) and/or the 30th Heartland International Film Festival (October 7-17, 2021) in Indianapolis.

At Heartland Film, we offer a fun and informative work environment where students can gain valuable experience in film festival planning and implementation, portfolio building, and networking opportunities in the nonprofit and entertainment industries.

Our internship positions are ideal for undergraduate and graduate 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. Interns are expected to work a schedule of 12-20 hours per week with the potential to work more hours during the Film Festivals.

In 2021, we will be offering a mix of virtual and on-site internships. Interns who have on-site positions will ideally live in the Indianapolis area and must have reliable transportation.
