Interning at IDA is a great way to support the organization, build your project management skills, and get access to leading documentary films and filmmakers.
IDA interns support the Programs and Events Department. IDA produces these programs and events:
Doc U: Monthly panel seminars
IDA Documentary Screening Series: 15 films screened September through January
IDA Awards: Prep and submission processing. IDA Awards ceremony is 1st Friday in December
DocuDay: Back to back screenings of the Academy Award® nominated documentary shorts and features, the day before the Oscars®.
Assist with other events (quarterly day long conferences, member mixers, etc) as needed.
Events often occur after business hours and on weekends. All interns are required to participate.
Benefits - attend IDA events, learn production management basics, face (or at least phone!) time with your favorite doc filmmakers, in a supportive (although hard working and sometimes demanding) work environment.
