In 2017, SFA launched our Summer Documentary Film Internship program to encourage and nurture emerging documentary filmmakers. For two months each summer, paid interns work directly under the guidance and mentorship of SFA’s Pihakis Foodways Documentary Filmmaker, Ava Lowrey. In addition to hands on learning through pre- and post-production assistance on current projects, the interns direct and edit individual film projects with producers Ava Lowrey and John T. Edge. Mountain Valley Spring Water generously underwrites these internships.
We’re pleased to introduce our 2019 Summer Documentary Film Interns.
