The Arab Film and Media Institute (AFMI) is the first organization of its kind outside the Arab world, a unique ecosystem to find, nurture, connect, and develop Arab film and media projects. It was rebranded from the Arab Film Festival in 2017 to fulfill its broader mandate to empower local Arab talent to tell their communities’ stories in their own voices through workshops, development and opportunities to screen their work. Through film, education, mentorship, and new media, AFMI’s mission is to change pervasive worldwide anti-Arab narratives.
This internship is to support AFMI’s Education program, which serves as an umbrella for a number of activities aimed at reaching out to communities throughout the United States through film and film education. The program includes year-round screenings of Arab films at middle- and high-schools, focused exhibitions at universities, and the newly launched summer workshop for Arab teens, Takalam: Arab Youth Speaking Up.
Excellent organization and communication skills are a must. This internship offers a monthly stipend after three months.
