**PLEASE NOTE this is not a film production job; however, this massive undertaking with many moving parts mimics a film production in its elements, and many of our interns have gone on to get internships and jobs in production because of the connections and expertise that were honed at the Woodstock Film Festival.
Ideal internship experiences are between 160-240 all-time hours. Reliable transportation to Woodstock, NY is required.
