Internship - Volunteer Opportunities for a Spanish speaking documentary film (video) Editing Apprentice to work on a feature documentary set in Lawrence, MA about climate justice.


No experience necessary, but you must speak Spanish,

Incite Pictures, and our not for profit, Cine Qua Non, is an award winning documentary film company specializing in compelling stories that illuminate and explore pressing social and cultural issues.

We are looking for someone who is interested in the subject matter, and wants real world experience. The primary job is screening footage, creating written logs, indicating important material for translation, and finding connections across footage.

You must be fluent in Spanish and it would be ideal, but not necessary, to have access to premiere pro.

You will work with our editor, who is also the producer-director, on screening footage that has been shot, taking detailed notes, deciding on translations, and helping expedite that process. Ideally you will insert subtitles, then sit with the editor, observing and helping as she works. While doing transcriptions, the work may be varied with other tasks, if you are interested. Possibilities include story research, preparing grant submissions, creating graphics and more.

This is a hybrid position, requiring a bit of in-person with the editor in Tribeca, but mostly remote. We are all vaccinated and working in a ventilated apartment.

Our office is in Tribeca, NYC, but we have been, and expect to continue, working remotely, with some in-person sessions, for the foreseeable future.

The work is not paid, but in return for your labor we will work with you to insure that the experience is meaningful. You will get a screen credit, a title for resume building, and, we hope, a useful skill set.

We require a flexible commitment of 20 hours a week for two months. While we would consider candidates who cannot give this amount of time, we have found that it will be more rewarding if you can do so. That said, the schedule is flexible, and some weeks there will more, some weeks less to do.

You must speak Spanish well, and it is very helpful to have access to premiere pro.

Please apply with a note, a resume, and if you have it, a work sample. School projects are fine.

NOTE We read each note and resume carefully, but we are apologize that we are unable to respond to applicants personally.
