We are seeking a motivated person with a strong passion for the Australian film industry and an interest in digital marketing. Potential interns should possess a strong attention to detail and have good organisational skills. A good working knowledge of office administration software (MS Word, Excel etc.) is desirable and a knowledge of Filemaker Pro or another database software package would an advantage, though not essential as training will be part of the role.

The long-term plan for this role is that it will lead to other opportunities across the festival. Previous interns have moved into paid roles with Flickerfest during and after the festival season.
