Firelight Media Internship Fall 2021

Firelight Media, the award-winning documentary production company behind the films of Stanley Nelson (CRACK: Cocaine, Corruption & Conspiracy, Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool, Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution, Tell Them We Are Rising) is reaching out for a Fall 2021 intern. Firelight produces films that expose injustice, illuminate the power of community and tell a history seldom told by mainstream media. Firelight is also dedicated to developing emerging documentary filmmakers telling underrepresented stories, and moving them from the margins to the forefront of mainstream media through high-quality, powerful productions.

To this end, the company is reaching out to source our next cohort of Firelight interns. Firelight interns support the teams on everything from pre-production to post-production, and will work closely with the entire Firelight team to help them further their mission of making an impact through documentary film.

Please note: Our internship program is currently operating on a FULLY remote basis until 2022.
