Film Internships

Unfortunately due to the Covid-19 pandemic we are not taking new applications for our internship program at the moment. If you are interested in participating in future years, please read on for more information and do get in touch to find out more!

Our Film Internship Program is looking for talented applicants to work with top Latin American Film companies. Participants will be based in Bogota, Colombia for this intensive summer course. They should be ambitious, enthusiastic, and keen to experience practical and technical production skills through hands-on work experience. You can choose from a range of specialisms, including production, camera, sound, lighting, and animation, to sales and marketing, distribution, or post-production.

The program lasts six or eight weeks and includes accommodation and a busy social calendar with many different cultural activities and excursions to help you make the most of your time in Colombia. You’ll be working alongside interns from the USA, the UK and Canada and our staff are available in Colombia to provide you with support and guidance throughout. Check out our photo galleries from the 2016, 2017  and 2018 film internship programs to see our previous interns in 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. Successful productions from participating companies include Narcos from Netflix, and the Discovery Channel’s Naked and Afraid, and this program offers participants the chance to get involved.

The Internship Program

Red Tree Study’s Film Internships offer you the chance to be a part of the most dynamic film and media companies in Colombia, as they lead the way in establishing the country at the forefront of cinema and television production. You’ll gain hands-on experience and invaluable preparation for employment in the sector.

Our Internships last for six or eight weeks. During your internship, you’ll be working full time – between 35 and 40 hours per week, Monday to Friday. You’ll have a designated workplace mentor, who will introduce you to your new role and work with you to review progress and provide guidance throughout your time in Colombia.

Our packages include comfortable accommodation (a private room in this lovely student halls). Red Tree Study’s program coordinators will be housed in the same accommodation for the duration of the course and will be on hand to help with any questions and in case of emergency.

The evening and weekend social program includes a variety of activities – from excursions to discover Colombia’s beautiful landscapes to group meals offering participants the chance to sample typical Colombian cuisine. These activities are carefully selected to enrich your understanding and enjoyment of the country. You’ll be invited to a launch event in Bogota with Proimagenes, the Colombian Film Commission, and you’ll be able to take part in weekly activities where you can mingle with other international Interns and their employers, to maximise your networking opportunities.

You’ll also have the opportunity to explore Colombia and experience much of what this beautiful country has to offer, and our Bogota staff are available throughout the Internship to answer questions and provide support if any problems arise.

We have paused recruitment for our internships for 2021 but hope to reopen for applicants soon. Please contact us to find out about the next steps for application.
