    HOLD ME RIGHT is an independent documentary exploring the aftermath of sexual assault. Our mission is to raise awareness about this pervasive problem. We hope to challenge prejudices about the causes and effects of sexual abuse through the intimate testimonies of forty survivors in the wake of these crimes. The film will be distributed to various educational institutions across the country, and screen at film festivals worldwide.

    SEEKING dedicated, passionate intern to assist in production, postproduction, research, social media, and outreach. Our in-house team is small: we give interns a hands-on experience with real responsibilities, real training, and real guidance, essentially, an opportunity to have a real impact on the process of creating an important documentary which will change the dialogue in our society about sexual abuse and sexual assault. You will work closely with both the director and the producer.

    We have 501(c)3 status and also have arrangements with a number of universities. We will provide full academic credit where necessary.

    This is a list of responsibilities that you will have the opportunity to accept.

    -Assistance on set during filming
    -Research in multiple areas of interest for the film, including but not limited to issues surrounding sexual abuse
    -Outreach to a wide variety of people and companies
    -Possibility of working with editor and/or in other aspects of postproduction
    -Writing copy for public relations
    -Social media content creation and feed management

    We firmly believe that an internship is first and foremost about training and experience. We prioritize these with our interns: you need to get as much as you can out of this collaboration.

    QUALIFICATIONS (some or all of these):
    -Passion for documentary, gender studies, journalism, collaboration, and/or social justice
    -Experience in some form of research
    -Ability to quickly find a needle in a haystack, somewhere on the internet
    -Social media prowess
    -Experience on-set, in post, or in editing is helpful but not required

    Please send us an email with your resume and a couple of words about why you’re right for this position, as well as which aspects of the internship are of greatest interest to you.

    Please include links to your social media accounts (even if they’re dormant).
