Networking and activities

Our Internships are designed to enhance your career whilst expanding your professional and social networks.

Every week, you’ll be invited to join your fellow interns and employers for social activities. We’ve built a social program that will help you make the most of your time in Colombia. It includes a range of activities such as cultural trips to museums and galleries, to group meals and parties. Check out this gallery from our 2017 Film Interns to see some examples of the things you’ll get to see and do.

You’ll also have the opportunity to attend a series of events where you’ll meet high-profile industry professionals such as Colombia’s top directors and producers, and find out what they have to say.

The exact details of the activities will be finalised in due course. Please get in touch if you have any questions or suggestions in the meantime.

The Social Calendar

Taking part in the internship isn’t just about developing your professional skills – we want you to have the chance to explore the beautiful culture and landscapes of Colombia and build friendships as well.

During the program, there are at least two activities arranged for you every week. From visiting the Salt Cathedral at Zipaquira to sampling typical Colombian cuisine, kayaking, or exploring the city and its recent history as part of a Grafitti tour, we have something that will interest you!

As part of the program, you will also be invited on a weekend excursion to the beautiful Colonial town of Villa de Leyva, a couple of hours away from Bogota. You’ll stay in a peaceful hostel, surrounded by colourful gardens in the hills just a short walk from the town centre.

The cost of these social activities are included in the program price, and there aren’t any participation fees. They are organised by our Red Tree Study program staff, who will accompany the group to each activity and will be on hand throughout to ensure that they run smoothly.

If you have any questions or would like to know the schedule for this year’s social calendar, get in touch.
