Applicants must have previous University coursework in film production. All applications will be forwarded to a representative of the feature film's producer. Once a producer offers a position to an applicant all paper work must be completed by the student in cooperation with the Feature Film Internship director. All interns will provide proof of insurance to the production company.

Feature film internships can be terminated at any time for poor attitude, unprofessional behavior, absence, or any other lack of performance set forth by the production company.
