Library & Film Study Center and Film Curatorial InternshipsInternships in the Library and Film Curatorial departments are available for UC Berkeley students. Each semester the Library & Film Study Center offers Film 197A. Students spend three hours per week helping to maintain BAM/PFA’s film documentation files, and attend one lecture per week on research strategies and resources in cinema studies. The library internship is open to Film Studies majors, who may enroll through Telebears; instructor approval is required for non-majors. Each semester the PFA Curatorial department offers 197C, a curating internship of three hours per week, culminating in the students curating a program of student-made work from either local film schools or the UC Berkeley campus. The curatorial internship is open to Film Studies and Digital Arts majors (other students may apply); enrollment is through Telebears and instructor approval is required.
Digital Media InternshipsThe BAM/PFA Digital Media Team offers a Video Production internship for people interested in learning how digital media can support the educational mission of a museum and film archive. UC Berkeley students are given preference, but students from other institutions and members of the community are also eligible.

Video Production Interns attend and document art openings, movie premieres, artist lectures, and educational events given on campus and around the community.
