FilmOut San Diego is a local nonprofit organization that seeks to recognize, promote, celebrate, and support the diverse artistic contributions of LGBTQ content creators through our annual LGBTQ film festival held every September. The FilmOut film festival not only brings LGBTQ films to the screen, but hosts LGBTQ filmmakers, actors, and film fans through various forums to enlighten, educate, and entertain the San Diego community and beyond.

Our internship program brings together motivated, enthusiastic college students with interests in marketing, branding, promotion, development, and community outreach. Interns will work as a team, engaged directly in the actions required to put on a film festival of our magnitude. Students who intern with FilmOut will work with one another and with the FilmOut board of directors who come together to make this special event happen every year.

The FilmOut internship program offers college students an opportunity to gain valuable first-hand experience while making an immediate impact within the organization and on the film festival itself. Our 2024 internships run June 16 to September 16, 2024. More information below.


Interns will gain valuable experiences in marketing, branding, community outreach, development, and film festival logistics. Interns will be responsible for expanding the organization’s relationships with community members, organizations, local business, and corporations in an effort to increase our sponsorships for the film festival. Interns will also navigate FilmOut’s social media, and work with the organization to promote and market the festival both online and offline. Intern responsibilities include but are not limited to the following:

  • create strategies to develop new and diverse audiences

  • identify individual, corporate, community, and foundation sponsor prospects
  • initiate, develop, and maintain sponsor contacts

  • identify opportunities for community outreach to raise festival awareness
  • initiate, develop, and maintain relationships with filmmakers and content creators as requested by the Board
