Internships, Festival & Screening Opportunities

If you are a student at NCSU and have secured an internship on your own, using ePACK or any other resources, please email Paul Isom with the name of the organization and the contact information for your supervisor, and you will be added to the required class, English 350 as soon as your registration window opens, which will allow you to receive 3 credits towards your degree.

If you would like help securing an internship, you need to complete an application process. You can find all of the details on the How to Apply page at internship program’s website. The materials you submit for the application helps us see what type of internship you want and what type of experience you already have.

English 350 and the successful completion of an internship can count as your Advised Elective in the Arts Studies Film Major (Film Concentration) or as an elective in the English-Film concentration.

About the North Carolina Film Office Directory:
The North Carolina Film Office provides a listing service to the states community of crew and support services companies without fee. You can create your free listing in four easy steps: 1) Select a listing type, a login, and a password, 2) Provide some basic contact information, 3) Add your skills & affiliations, and 4) Select the appropriate listing categories (there is a maximum of 2 listing categories). Crew registrants will be also required to enter professional credits (i.e., feature, short, documentary, commercial, etc.). There is a minimum requirement of 1 and a maximum of 10 professional credits per listing category. Upon completion, your profile will be reviewed and validated within 24 hours. For those who do not have a verifiable professional credit/project and are, therefore, unable to register in our Resource Directory, we would suggest they visit the website and view current productions in the state. If there is a specific production they are interested in, they can contact this office and they will then be provided with production office contact information (provided we have received it from the production company). They can then contact the production office to inquire about any possible internships.
