Internship Openings


Applications are now open for the 2021 Spring and Summer terms, for the intern training program at Motion Picture Industry Institute (, a gold-standard of entry-level opportunities in the motion picture industry. The program focuses on such vital areas as:

+ story development
+ casting
+ on-set production protocols
+ editing and post production
+ dealmaking, legal, and financing
+ marketing and promotion
+ industry structures and processes
+ career launching and building strategies

Most entry-level jobs in entertainment require experience. Good internships are the way past that catch-22. The best internships provide extra training and experience-building opportunities. This program has been developed and improved over the years, to have by far the most:

  • basic and well as high-level skills training,
  • hands-on experience,
  • insider career launch strategies, and
  • opportunities to build high-quality ‘we’ve worked together’ relationships with peers and those ahead of you, who can provide those all-important recommendations required to land the best entry-level jobs.

The MPii internship program is both an ideal first internship (where you can learn how to properly make the right impression and where you can safely make your rookie mistakes). It’s also a great way for experienced interns to take their game to a higher level to more effectively compete for the most sought-after entry-level jobs.

This is a demanding program, with a competitive application process, and best-suited for those who are serious about fully engaging. (Please Note: Because MPii is a research & training institute, ours is one of the few intern programs in the industry where you do not need to be currently enrolled in school in order to qualify).
