Lights. Camera. Help. Community Manager Internship

Lights. Camera. Help. is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to encouraging other nonprofit and cause-driven organizations to use film and video to tell their stories. We do this through education, volunteer match programs, and an annual film festival.

We are looking for interns to help fulfil the organization’s mission while learning the nuts and bolts of nonprofit arts administration.  While interning at Lights. Camera. Help. you will also see the inner-workings of the film industry and support the nonprofit and cause-driven film communities.
