The film studies program is looking for summer and fall interns. If you are interested in developing social media skills and learning more about the Miami film scene, you have what it takes.
Former interns have gone on to win Miami Film Development Project grant, are working screenwriters, and have won employment in the Miami film community in such organizations as the Coral Gables Art Cinema and the Miami Jewish Film Festival.
Interns register for FIL 4940, with a sliding scale of credits based on hours. You will work directly with Dr. Strycharski, Director of the film studies certificate program.
We are keen to find one or two interns for Summer A, and several interns for the fall. If you are interested, please drop Dr. Strycharski a line.

It’s practically impossible to not have at least heard about “Moonlight” by now, especially in Miami. So we’ve teamed up with a few organizations to bring FIU a free screening and discussion of our native gem! It doesn’t matter if you haven’t gotten around to watching it or seen it more than five times, be a little extra for Miami on April 4th and join us in GC 140.
In a momentous occasion, Moonlight came out on top at the 89th Academy Awards. Despite Hollywood’s checkered history around race, religion, and sexuality, the film that was made on a shoestring budget managed to take home three awards on Sunday night. The Academy Awards opened and closed the ceremony with Moonlight winning an award. The film taking home the biggest prize of the night, Best Picture, marks a huge step forward for the Academy. A coming of age film about gay man of color living in Liberty City, not about slavery or the civil rights movement, has expanded the Academy’s recognition of black filmmaking beyond confining storylines or stereotypes.
The Miami Film Festival is here! But wait, you’ve never attended a film festival or festival screening before. Whether you’re diving in or just dipping your toe in the water, here’s everything you need to know to make your first festival experience shine.
