Colombia Film Internship Program

Colombia Film Internship Program

Revisit this page again soon for information on the Summer 2018 Program!…

The program


Our Film Internship program will run in Bogota, Colombia, in summer 2017, and placements will last for six or eight weeks. Applicants should be ambitious, enthusiastic and keen to develop practical and technical production skills through hands-on work experience. Interns can expect to be working on high-profile projects: for example, they could be placed with Dynamo (who produce Narcos), Screen Colombia (The Discovery Channel’s Naked and Afraid), 64A Films (the hugely successful telenovela El Patron del Mal), or work at Cuidad Lunar with Oscar-winning Director Ciro Guerra.


Participants have a dedicated workplace mentor, who will provide the relevant professional training and weekly written reviews. Spoken Spanish is desirable but not essential.


The internships are arranged as a package that includes accommodation, an airport pickup, networking events, and a busy social calendar designed to help participants explore Colombia and its culture. The program will launch with an event at Proimagenes, the Colombian Film Commission, and students will also be able to attend a series of prestigious lectures at Bogota Audiovisual Market, an internationally-renowned event that promotes the industry in Colombia.


What roles are available?


The Internships cover a range of specialisms, including production, camera, sound, lighting and animation, to sales and marketing, distribution or post-production. You can find the list of available jobs on our website.


Why Colombia?


It’s an exciting time for the Colombian film industry. Currently experiencing rapid growth and drawing international attention and investment, it offers ideal work experience opportunities. Backed by government initiatives, it continues to attract productions from big names such as FOX, National Geographic, and Netflix and our Internship program offers applicants the chance to be a part of it.
