FilmPEI is a well-respected business in the Province. Working with the organization, the intern will gain valuable experience on a large and complex project. They will be required to deliver weekly updates to the Executive Director, detailing current progress, issues, and upcoming project milestones. The intern will learn key skills such as time management and managing client expectations.

FilmPEI has a wide range of partners with varied skills and competencies. FilmPEI will assess what the intern should deliver directly and what deliverables lie outside their scope of delivery. We like to challenge our staff, but we also are a teaching facility and know when we need to offer more support or change the scope of the project. In the end, the intern will walk away with a finished project for a major PEI client that will be a strong addition to their portfolio. Additionally, FilmPEI will gain a contact we may hire for future digital projects.
