We are thrilled to announce that this year’s SCREENWORKS REGIONAL SCREEN IN LA PROGRAM will be the ANIMAL LOGIC ENTERTAINMENT INTERNSHIP. This is an incredibly exciting opportunity for any regionally-based undergraduates or recent graduates, who demonstrate significant potential in their screen industry-related studies, to work with our passionate storytellers in the Los Angeles offices of ALE and Truant Pictures. The two-month internship will involve all aspects of international feature film development, acquisitions, packaging and production.
“Internships are integral to launching the careers of aspiring filmmakers and we are thrilled to be partnering this year with Screenworks to recognise storytellers from regional areas,” said Animal Logic CEO Zareh Nalbandian. “These unique voices are important to upholding diversity in Hollywood and we are proud to support the next generation of regional Australian talent.”
“Over the past five years, we have been working with Animal Logic Entertainment on this career-defining opportunity and we are enormously proud to watch all the previous recipients go on to successful careers in the screen industry. This new generation of executives have all benefited from this incredible opportunity and we are excited to be partnering with Screenworks this year to support the career development of a recipient from Regional Australia,” Executive Director of AiF Peter Ritchie said.
The successful recipient will receive USD$10,000 to contribute towards rent and living costs while in Los Angeles for 2 months, in addition to receiving return flights from Australia to Los Angeles, and industry support and US networking opportunities from AiF. All visa processing fees are covered in the program. The recipient will be based out of ALE and Truant Pictures’ offices at Rideback Ranch in Los Angeles.
Applications are now open and will close on 9th December 2019 for an internship which will take place in 2020.
