Part Time Unpaid Internship
XYZ Films is an integrated film company whose mission is to empower visionary storytellers from every corner of the planet. As an independent production company and worldwide sales agency, the company is uniquely suited to identify talented filmmakers and bring their stories to life. XYZ was founded in 2008 by Nate Bolotin, Nick Spicer, and Aram Tertzakian. XYZ has been behind award-winning films such as The Raid franchise, Mandy, Arctic and most recently the Netflix hit STOWAWAY.
XYZ Films is seeking an independent, proactive and motivated International Sales intern for 2 to 3 days per week, from 10am-5pm. The internship is unpaid and no school credit is required but can be provided if need be.
International Sales Intern will be exposed to the worlds of international film sales and markets, as well as film finance and operations within a company.
Interns will be asked to do general administrative and project based tasks. They will learn how to evaluate scripts and screeners from a sales perspective and will weigh in on criteria such as commerciality, marketability, appropriate cast, etc. They will learn about the art of negotiating and closing a deal and the major deal points involved in a distribution deal, as well as the necessary steps one must take when preparing to attend a market/festival, and the festival circuit as a whole.
Throughout the internship, interns will have the opportunity to sit in on company conference calls and meetings, and schedule Q&A sessions with all executives in each department, allowing for a more in-depth and well-rounded learning experience. While markets remain virtual, interns will have the unique and valuable opportunity to sit in on market meetings with buyers. Interns will also be taught essential entry-level desk coverage skills so they are prepared for their first job in the industry once their internship concludes.
