Astoria Film Festival Interns & Film Fellows

 

Astoria Film Festival Intern programs are several-week programs held through partnerships with specific HS's and colleges and/or community centers.  If you are a school or community center* that is interested in having its students participate in our internship programs, please contact us at astoriafilmfestival at gmail.com.  Interns work on a variety of projects, from remote work creating social media content and editing video and films to in-person work as Production Assistants on our AFFProduction film shoots and our .Film Workshop film shoots.

*Please note that we only take interns through our partnerships with schools and/or community centers at this time.  

Spots are limited and we do not currently take walk-on interns.

 

Fall Intern Cohort: (SOAR, LAGCC) October 1-Dec 10

Winter Intern Cohort A (Bryant HS): Dec 5- March 20

The Astoria Film Festival Film Fellows Program provides HS and College Students interested in film/tv/digital media production real- world work experience, training, and industry mentors. Our goal is to promote access and develop pathways for emerging talent, diverse voices, and underrepresented youth to explore careers in the film/tv/digital media fields. 

 

Film Fellows have worked with us first as Interns and were then invited to continue working with us, in a more leadership capacity, on various AFFProductions projects and in our Film Workshops.

Students come from a variety of NYC Schools and Community Centers including:

High Schools:

High School of Art & Design, Manhattan

Bryant High School, Queens

Community Centers:

Jacob Riis at Ravenswood Houses
