Publishing - Film Assistant Editor - 2022 Winter/Spring INTERNSHIP

"Some educational institutions require prior approval before the start of an internship. It is the responsibility of the student to check with their institution to be sure they meet any requirements before they accept a position."

DURING THE PANDEMIC -- your job will include: researching all film festivals that have moved online as well as other film events appropriate for previews on Picture This Post.

AFTER THE PANDEMIC - you will be corresponding with worldwide film festivals (English language or subtitled in English) to arrange for review coverage by our film review writers.


Amy Munice, Editor in Chief, will be the primary supervisor of your internship. She is the co-publisher of the magazine, a 30+ year PR professional and freelance journalist, and cultural reporter who has penned many hundreds of articles. She will be the author of your future reference for job hunting purposes.

You will be responsible for keeping a to-do list updated in real time, and a cumulative report- -which if possible, we would prefer you also share with your school internship supervisor.

Training sessions are held by zoom—usually in small groups—throughout the week and weekend. Initially you will need to adapt your schedule in order to attend training sessions for your role in the soonest possible timeframe. Once you have the prerequisite skills, you determine your schedule each week in order to meet your school’s hour requirements for your internship.

Picture This Post is an entirely volunteer organization, from top to bottom. We are a not-for-profit (as opposed to a 501c3 non-profit) – too small to hire accountants etc. needed for non-profit status. Students are like all volunteers EXCEPT that much time/energy goes into training students and helping you develop a portfolio for future job hunting.  


You are also invited to write 1+ reviews each week- in film and all sections. This will involve learning how to master our writers' guidelines.
Please look at all the sections of our magazine and tell us which ones you are especially interested in and whether you want to focus on social media, writing or both.  Please especially study our Film Section –

Write to for copies of our various writers' guidlines.
Hours flexible 10+ per week. (Plus 10+ hours if writing training is desired).
