The Palm Springs International Film Society is always looking for talented interns who want to learn more about film, communications, event planning, and business management.
The Film Society offers a comprehensive program in which interns gain skills in their chosen field, learn the workings of a non-profit organization, and experience how a film festival operates from the inside. We are proud to host a new cohort of interns each season to learn about and contribute to the process of putting on two major international film festivals and other year-round programming. Internships offer a stipend upon completion.
"Interning at the Palm Spring Film Festival I was able to get first-hand experience and learn the process of a festival from the beginning stages. The staff was wonderful to work with and I enjoyed all the networking opportunities. Overall, it really was a unique and amazing time."
-Kelanie A., Programming Intern
"Interning with Special Events was an unforgettable, hands-on experience. Day or night I looked forward to the fun, fast paced environment interacting with a welcoming staff, volunteers, VIPs, talent and more. I dedicated many hardworking hours learning as much as possible along the way. I was excited when I was asked to return for the ShortFest 2013. I'm grateful for the opportunity and the knowledge I can carry with me in my future endeavors."
- Maria A., Special Events Intern
"My very first internship was at PSIFF and I can't stress how much it's paid off for me and my career! Not only is it fun and educational, but you get to hobnob with the industry's elite. The internship is truly immeasurable in value!"
- Aaron C., PSIFF intern
