We are so lucky here at the AAFF to have the opportunity to work with a wonderful group of student interns each year from the University of Michigan; Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti; Michigan State University in East Lansing; the College for Creative Studies and Wayne State University, both in Detroit; and Edge Hill University in Ormskirk, Lancashire, England. This is the time of year when we invite applications from intern candidates to join our team for the coming festival cycle. From outreach to graphic design, we have six open internship positions available for the 61st.

If you love to learn; have an interest in the world of the arts, film, and community; and are hoping to find your passion within the arts and nonprofit sector, our internship program might be just what you are looking for.

The internship program is based around mutual learning and growth. You learn from the internship, and by becoming a vital member of the team, you also have the chance to bring your skills and knowledge to the table and gain priceless experience. AAFF interns go on to do many great things from here.

Open positions include:

  • Graphic Design Assistant

  • Operations Assistant

  • PR & Marketing Assistant

  • Sponsorships & Partnerships Assistant

  • Tech Assistant

  • Video Production Assistant

Applications are currently being accepted on a rolling basis. All internships last until the end of the 60th season in April of 2023. Internships are unpaid but some academic programs will permit internship hours to be applied toward college credit requirements.

Location: Ann Arbor, MI

Application deadline: Open until filled.

To apply, please collect your letter of interest, resume/CV, and two references, and submit them on this Google Form.
