MPI’s Hollywood Career Launch Program is a highly-competitive internship program that equips freedom-minded filmmakers with the experience, knowledge, support, and network they need to succeed in the film industry. The deadline to receive priority consideration for our summer program is Monday, March 1, so click here to start your application today!
MPI interns are placed in paid positions on set of MPI Original Film productions or at one of our partner production companies, such as BRON Studios (Joker, The Way Back), Millennium Entertainment (The Expendables, Olympus Has Fallen, The Hitman’s Bodyguard), and Bold Films (Drive, Vox Lux).
Participants attend MPI’s Intern Summit, which prepares them for success as they enter their first professional experiences in the film business. The Summit connects interns with MPI’s network of filmmakers and grants them access to MPI’s staff and guest speakers, who offer a wealth of advice. Interns learn the inner workings of the entertainment industry, which equips them to more effectively capitalize on their internships. Sessions of the Summit cover how Hollywood films export ideas to a global audience, how films are packaged for sale, and career advice from program alumni.
MPI sponsors the Academy Gold program, which provides our interns additional mentorship opportunities with members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences. Selected interns receive specialized training in their chosen area of filmmaking in addition to the work they do at their host company. This program provides all MPI interns with access to Academy programming such as curated panels, private film screenings, networking opportunities with industry professionals, studio tours, and educational workshops.
If you possess strong communication skills, independence of thought, creative talent, a demonstrated interest in pursuing a career in film, and, of course, a shared vision of freedom through film, apply here.
