Each year, hundreds of NYU Tisch Film & Television students complete internships in different facets of the entertainment industry. Our students frequently land exciting positions at such places as The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, Bleecker Street Films, GKids, Anonymous Content, Hornet and A24 Films, to name a few. Alumni from our department go on to work for many of the same outfits, and they complete the circle by turning around and hiring more of our students.

Our internship office receives calls for interns from companies involved in film, television, and other media, including games, magazines, websites and streaming services, theatre, advertising agencies, studio facilities, and camera rental houses. They continue to hire Tisch students thanks to our students’ professionalism, expertise, and drive.

And from Film and Television-industry hiring managers who have utilized our internship program:

“We love that the NYU Tisch students we hire into our internship program come from a hands-on, immersive production curriculum. We have seen with prior interns that the curriculum gives the students the general understanding of a film set, including production 101 basics, which allows for them to learn other important aspects of the film and TV business while interning with us. Our Tisch students all know how to edit on the latest editing software and are usually the ones teaching us what is the next best thing! A few of our television executives are NYU grads, allowing us to share our experiences, and to guide and mentor our fellow alumni.”

“Tisch students bring developed ‘soft skills’ and an eagerness to learn to the workplace. I appreciate their enthusiasm, maturity, and their desire to utilize their creative skill set and apply it to the business side of the entertainment industry.”

“The Tisch Internship program is one in a million. We have had a few stellar students from the program spend a semester with our fast paced production company and as a supervisor, I couldn't be more pleased with the friendly attitudes and great tenacity that the Tisch students bring!”
