Winternships

Winternships provide a media "boot camp" experience at highly regarded film and media organizations around the country. Students who do Winternships get intensive exposure to the media industry in a range of fields, including journalism, radio, advertising, film production, talent management, marketing, and more. Students work on special projects, shadow employees, or participate in the daily work at the sites. Sites are located in Boston, New York, Los Angeles, and other cities. You could intern at a top-notch media agency such as Havas Media, United Talent Agency, The Boston Globe, SmartyPants Pictures, and more!

Offered during the January break, Winternships are open to students of all majors and classes, including seniors graduating in December.

Past Winternship sites have included:

  • Annapurna Pictures
  • Bona Fide Productions
  • C-Space
  • Filmmakers Collaborative
  • Glass Entertainment Group
  • ICM
  • Smartypants Pictures
  • United Talent Agency (UTA)
  • WBUR
  • WGBH
  • WNET/Channel 13

Each year’s list of Winternship sites will become available when the application goes live early in the fall semester. Contact Leslie Goldberg with questions.

Winternship Testimonials:

Phoebe Yates, (A22), Bona Fide Productions

As a development intern at Bona Fide productions, I underwent a crash-course in the day-to-day life of a production company developing compelling new film projects. By writing script coverage, generating potential cast and director lists, and sitting in on development meetings, I was able to sharpen my skills as a potential producer and story-teller.

Ethan Steinberg, (current junior), Boston.com

My winternship at Boston.com has been truly phenomenal. Pete and the other editors have put a tremendous amount of effort into designing informative programming for myself and the other winterns —we’ve already gotten to meet with staffers from all over the Globe.

Jake Freudberg, (A22), WGBH Radio

A big THANK YOU for making these Winternships happen! Both this year and last year were amazing experiences, even virtually. And in this case, it has already led to another great opportunity.
