Access Theater Internship Opportunity

Access Theater, located in the heart of Tribeca, is looking for motivated and ambitious interns to work on a variety of projects. Interns can apply as either theater interns or film interns.

Theater interns will assist Access Theater’s artistic director, Will Detlefsen, in the administrative offices – helping with scheduling, development, and management of productions and facilities. Additionally, interns will read and provide feedback on scripts, and assist with event coordination and programming.

Film Interns will be assisting Jacqueline Christy on her first feature film, Magic Hour, as well as a short film funded by the Sloan Foundation called Starcatcher. Interns will help with production, casting, budgeting, film festival submissions, development research, script support, as well as many other jobs crucial to the filmmaking process.

The best candidate would be a proactive, organized team player who doesn’t mind the sometimes dynamic nature of the theater or film industries, and is eager to assist and learn, whether that means helping out a production designer select period furniture, or stapling scripts for a table reading. This is a great position for someone who dreams of becoming a producer, however, any interest in the arts and film is highly appreciated.

Access Theater is a not-for-profit organization that is a huge proponent of supporting indie artists and creatives. Founding Executive Producer Jacqueline Christy is leading Access All Media, a new initiative to develop film and new media projects. Availability and schedule will be discussed during the interview process.
