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, production equipment rentals, 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 work alongside DCTV's staff, contributing to our multi-faceted organization while learning skills and accessing resources that DCTV provides. During their term, Interns receive access to DCTV Workshops, Equipment 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.
