January – June 2008
SILVERDOCS: AFI/Discovery Channel Documentary Festival is a week long documentary film festival held in June or July every year in Silver Spring, MD. Not only does it bring together dozens of unique and colorful films but also serves a place for artists and documentary filmmakers to come together and showcase the power of documentaries.
Here at my very first internship I served as a programming intern for the festival and helped in a large variety of roles which included:
●Managing information on 80 submissions to festival via File Maker Pro and Withoutabox Databases.
●Organizing and assembling 860 juror reviews on submitted entries.
●Editing director and background information to blurbs for Silverdoc’s Festival program book.
●Promoting festival over 3 months by developing & maintaining working relationships with outside published and organizing websites.
●Creating and managing two public Google calendars for film festival and conference schedule.
