IDA interns learn while working with the IDA's staff, supporting and producing a variety of the organization's programs. As an IDA intern, you'll have the opportunity to attend IDA events, interact with some of your favorite filmmakers, and grow your research, production, editing, social media, and design skills. Internships at IDA are unpaid.
