The employer: GKIDS is an exciting, dynamic independent distributor of award-winning, critically-acclaimed and artist-driven animated films, as well as films about unique youth experiences around the globe (that are not expressly targeting family audiences).
The job: We are looking for interns to help with researching and contacting theaters and support organizations, researching new films, maintaining our social networking and outreach programs, talking with press, and day to day operations. It will be a hands-on, immersive way to experience multiple angles of the film distribution business, for anyone who is looking for a career on the business side of filmmaking. Please note that we are distributors, not producers, so we currently do not engage in production work.
Qualifications: Interns should love movies and be familiar with some of our competitors, like IFC, Sony Pictures Classics, Focus, etc., be hardworking, skilled communicators and comfortable with research and basic computer functions. Additional experience with programs like Final Cut, Photoshop, HTML, or foreign languages are very helpful and may get you working on special projects.
To Apply: Please send your cover letter and resume to Dave Jesteadt at firstname.lastname@example.org.
