Volunteer & Internships


The Ann Arbor Film Festival offers exciting fall/winter internships!  We are looking for energetic, focused, organized individuals who are excited to be a part of our unique community and help drive our creative efforts.  We are seeking motivated and dependable interns who will commit 12-15 hours a week.  During the first half (fall) of the internship, interns are expected to participate in standard office tasks including: database entry, trips to the post office and bank, etc.  For the second half (winter), interns are expected to continue their office tasks, but will also be assigned more specific roles to ensure a successful 53rd Festival!  These roles include (but are not limited to):

  • Submissions Assistant
  • Community Outreach & Development Assistant
  • Traveling Tour Assistant
  • Print Traffic Assistant
  • Archival and Festival-related Research
  • Design Assistant

If you have knowledge of InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop and/or Final Cut or other editing software please be sure to let us know!

The fall/winter internship runs from October 6, 2014 to April 18, 2015

An AAFF internship provides excellent real-world experience in the fast-paced (at times) film festival industry. It is a great resume builder and we provide recommendations for our interns. Our office environment is hard-working, but fun and laid back, often with music and/or movies in the room. 

To apply, please email your resume and cover letter to Ellie White at volunteers@aafilmfest.org.

***Please note we only offer unpaid internships at this time. We have more applicants than positions available, so not everyone is placed***
