TEAM WORK: Interns from all over Europe and staff of the French Film Festival UK celebrate the conclusion of another successful edition. Applications are sought now for this year’s edition.

Although the Government has given assurances that the Erasmus scheme will be protected after the transition period many potential candidates are not convinced by all the uncertainty surrounding this and other issues. The French Film Festival UK has benefited enormously over the years by the participation of Erasmus and other European students as part of internship programme.
This year inquiries from potential candidates has practically dried up as a result of the fall-out from the UK’s departure from the EU. Nothing changes during the transition period until the end of the year so anyone seeking an internship this year (and beyond) is welcome to apply.
You will be mentored in skills associated with cultural management, film exhibition and distribution, copy editing, advertising and media liaison.

We suit roles to match your skills in such areas as hospitality, logistics, guest liaison, and coordination.
