APPLY: Telluride Film Festival Now Hiring For 2013 PA Program

2013  Telluride Film Festival Production Apprentice Program

“For those who want the fullest ‘behind-the-scenes’ adventure, we select 8-10 eager applicants as Production Apprentices for an intensive 6 weeks of preparation in Telluride. Remember the Elementary School gym that transforms into a galactic movie palace? That takes many hands and long hours. Carpentry, rigging, painting and other production skills — apprentices acquire a real hands-on view of assembling a world-class event from the ground up.

Like other volunteers, the Production Apprentices will not be compensated monetarily during the 5-day festival itself, but receive a Festival pass and privileges in exchange for time working during the Festival weekend.”

Deadline: April 22nd

Program Dates: Monday, July 29th through Friday, September 6th

The Telluride Film Festival will always have a special place in my heart because it was my first *paid* festival gig. If you love festing as much as I do, then apply today. The Production Apprentice program (aka “DOG” program) is like no other. Last summer, I chronicled my trip to the beautiful mountain town right here on Indies. If you have any questions, shoot me a comment below.
