Winner of 127 Emmy Awards, NFL FILMS is widely recognized as the most honored filmmaker in sports and is credited with revolutionizing the way America watches football and sports in general. Each year NFL FILMS produces more than 600 hours of new NFL programming for NFL Network, ESPN, HBO, Showtime, all major broadcast and numerous cable networks, NFL.com, and content-streaming platforms. Additionally, NFL FILMS provides audio/visual and engineering support for other divisions of the NFL.
The NFL FILMS Internship Program is a paid opportunity. Participants in the program have the chance to experience one of the most unique learning environments in the television and film industries. The NFL FILMS Internship Program is known for offering a hands-on approach to learning. Our award-winning staff is willing to assist and mentor those individuals with a serious desire to further their studies and achieve their career goals. Incorporated into the internship program are seminars that cover topics such as navigating the unique employment landscape in this industry, the importance of networking, freelancing, and Q & A sessions with executives and former interns. Additionally, we provide time for interns to observe and experience all phases of our operations in film and video production as well as the opportunity to work on one’s own project to upgrade his or her skills and demo reel.
While we provide time for interns to observe and experience all phases of our operations in film and video production, the NFL FILMS Internship Program is not a rotational experience. Interns are assigned to (1) department for the duration of their internship. There are several departments within NFL FILMS that offer internship opportunities. A description of each department can be found below. Please thoroughly read through each department description before selecting your area of interest in our application. Based on an applicant’s stated interest, course of study and experience, we will assign an intern to spend the majority of his or her time in one of those departments.
Please Note: We do not offer internships in the areas of live event broadcasting, business of sports, sport management, advertising, or public relations. Should you have interest in those areas, please reach out to the National Football League headquarters regarding their internship program*
