The SFFILM internship program is a competitive educational opportunity offering on-the-job training and pre-professional skill building to emerging arts advocates, filmmakers, and nonprofit professionals. Interns gain valuable experience in a range of SFFILM program areas, including marketing, publicity, programming, education, operations, development, and more.


Summer internships run early June through late August. Students of all ages, backgrounds, and fields of study are encouraged to apply.

These opportunities are unpaid but offer free access to all of our programs during the internship term, a year-round membership with SFFILM, and hands-on skill-building. We operate with a mentoring spirit, and we invest in the professional development of our interns.
