Home Movie Collection Fall Intern 



The Academy's Film Archive in Hollywood is seeking applicants for a paid internship this Fall from students enrolled in archiving, film studies, library and information studies, moving image studies, or other conservation-related programs. Interns generally work two full days a week for ten weeks (about 120 to 140 hours total). There is a possibility the internship could continue into the Winter term. Students may pursue school credit if the internship meets their school's requirements.

The Film Archive considers home movies of southern California to be primary source documentation of our region's rich history, and this project-based position will entail the processing of largely anonymous home movie collections-from inspection, research and identification, to the creation of archival records. Interns can expect to gain experience in the everyday workings of a film archive, be introduced to our cataloging and collection management systems, and develop skills in how to properly handle and inspect film and video material.


  • Film handling, inspection and cataloging of small gauge film.
  • Additional research and identification of archival content as needed.
  • Assist in the creation and content review of newly digitized home movie files.
  • General support to other archive projects as they come up.
Position Requirements
  • Currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate accredited program.
  • 3.0 grade point average or higher.
  • Minimum of one year of study toward a degree in a related field.
  • Interest in the film industry, specifically in moving image conservation and preservation.
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills and problem-solving skills.
  • Willingness to engage in other department activities related to records management, preservation, and collection services.
