About the festival: The Tri-Co Film Festival showcases exemplary film and media work by students at Haverford, Bryn Mawr, and Swarthmore colleges. Highlighting the diversity of media production within the Tri-Co, the program seeks work that demonstrates creativity, craft, and intentionality across a variety of genres and aesthetics. This year, the festival will be in-person hosted at the Bryn Mawr Film Institute. The in-person festival includes a live screening, a panel discussion, and awards ceremony on Tuesday, May 7, 2024. The program will be available for virtual viewing at the Bryn Mawr Film Institute website after the fest.

Internship description: As an intern, you will be responsible for learning the details of the Tri-Co Film Festival in order to assist with social media and campus outreach across the Tri-Co community at large. During the ceremony, you will have event management responsibilities. Depending on your qualifications and interests, the position includes optional film editing support and graphic design. Strong communication skills and knowledge of Google Drive while reporting to the Festival Directors is a must. 

This internship is a great opportunity to gain experience with film festival administration and marketing.
