Intern - Film Sales, Marketing, and Distribution
Visit FilmsBrooklyn, NY
Part Time Unpaid Internship
Monument Releasing and Visit Films, an independent film distributor and worldwide sales company based in Brooklyn, are seeking hard-working, organized, and detail-oriented part-time interns for the spring semester to fill roles in Distribution & Marketing, Sales & Marketing, and Acquisitions.
The interns will work one-on-one with a small team, and will have the unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience in every aspect of film distribution and sales, from acquisition to post-theatrical release.
Unlike most film industry internships, this position will never require the intern to go on coffee runs. Every task will be related specifically to the process of film sales and releasing. Since we have a small staff, the intern will be given a wide-range of responsibilities on a variety of tasks, including:
- Audience outreach and engagement
- Organizational outreach and engagement
- Assisting in the design of marketing and advertising materials
- Drafting film-specific pitches for theaters and digital platforms
- Coordinating the delivery of prints and advertising materials
- Coverage of potential acquisitions
- Database entry
Work schedules are flexible, but prospective interns would be expected to work 15-20 hours per week. This position pays minimum wage and college credit can be made available. Please consult your school and provide the necessary internship documents.
While previous experience in film is a strong asset, the ideal candidate possesses a love for independent and foreign language film and a desire to learn more about the business. Exemplary writing skills, a professional demeanor, and strong organizational skills are essential. A successful candidate is someone who can be trusted to manage important tasks and is comfortable working independently. Candidates with knowledge of Photoshop and/or InDesign will have a significant advantage, but neither is a requirement. Previous experience in outreach, marketing, or publicity is strongly preferred.
