DCTV Internship Program

Founded in 1972, DCTV is an established media arts resource for NYC’s independent filmmaking community, located in a gothic landmark firehouse in Chinatown/Tribeca. DCTV provides affordable workshops, post-production facilities, a signature screening series, renowned youth programming, and more – all under the same roof as its award-winning documentary production house.

Our internship program allows a small group of dedicated people to spend time alongside DCTV's staff, contributing to our multifaceted organization while learning skills and accessing resources that DCTV provides. During their term, Interns receive access to DCTV Workshops and Media Lab rentals, as well as a daily travel stipend.

We encourage anyone who is passionate about independent filmmaking and/or grassroots non-profit administration to apply.


Interns work two days per week (Mon-Fri, 10am-6pm) for an approximate 12-15 week* Internship Cycle in a specific department.


During their term, Interns receive access to free DCTV Workshops, Media Lab Rentals (subject to availability), and a daily travel stipend.
