This Intern Program is a hands-on, real life educational program that allows students to participate actively and creatively under the guidance of the EFV team and in collaboration with the EFV Filmmakers. It is an invaluable experience for interdisciplinary thinking, problem solving, and collaboration.


We offer the EFV program as an educational platform for out-of-the-classroom learning and to enrich the experience for everyone involved in the EFV process from the Production Team to the Filmmakers. It is our belief that a program with such a diverse team will offer the most profound experience for everyone involved. This is why EFV and the satellite events involve a mix of local, national, and international artists, academic faculty, professionals in the field, professional dancers, emerging and established artists and some very accomplished award-winning guests as well as our student Interns. 


The diversity of experience at EFV includes site specific public performance events such as Art in a Barn, the organization, scheduling, and production of multilple films, as well as insight into the creative administration, planning, organization as well as the the ever-important documentation and archiving of the experience. We offer our Interns the opportunity to build their portfolios, gain professional credit and experience, network, create---and have a little fun.


Each participating student is asked to obtain a $500 sponsorship in order to help offset program and housing costs. We are more than happy to work with schools and students to offer a letter of invitation, collaborative agreement or any other official documentation needed. Schools are welcome to apply for additional funding to cover student travel costs, per diems, etc. 



We are very interested in working with you and will make a case-by-case agreement with anyone interested in applying. This is a great opportunity to take on leadership roles, sharpen your resume, and position yourself for a job at EFV post-graduation. 

Interns participate based on the following categories:
