The Black List Intern - Summer 2023 (Gold Rising) 


This internship is with The Black List and is part of the Gold Rising Program, an 8-week
internship enhancement program that incorporates learning opportunities including an intensive
two-day orientation, weekly panels, exclusive networking events, workshops, screenings, and
mentorship opportunities with Academy members.


The Black List is a technology startup and a film and television production company whose
mission is to identify and celebrate great screenwriting and the people who do it, wherever they
may be. We do so via our annual list of the industry's most liked unproduced screenplays, our
technology platform offering writers and industry professionals a marketplace for great material,
our diversity lists, our screenwriters labs, and our film and television productions.

We are a small team that punches far above our weight, and we are looking for interns with a
clear passion for film, television, and technology to join us in doing the same.
Ideal interns are likely the sort of people who have strong opinions on some, if not all, of the
following: the Oscars, Movie posters, book and album covers, fine art, architecture, fashion
(haute couture, street, and where the two meet), the aesthetics of television ads, film and
television company logos, Twitter Spaces, and whether RottenTomatoes or Metacritic is more
useful. More importantly, they're the sort of people who can communicate those strong opinions
effectively with people who disagree without being disagreeable.

While most interns will be generalists - working on a wide variety of projects related to Black List
business - prospective interns with a specific interest in, and aptitude for, graphic design and/or
video work may have the opportunity to specialize if they so desire. The Summer 2023 internship will take place virtually due to Covid.
