Docademia is seeking interns to join our dynamic team! This is a great opportunity for students interested in social justice to be part of our film evaluation project on social documentaries from across the world.

Docademia is a social initiative that uses independent documentaries to bring social justice discussions to life in classrooms. We offer a video-on-demand film catalog and Live Q&A service with the filmmakers/activists to connect independent documentarians from around the world with faculty members and students at colleges and universities.

The interns will be supervised by a member of the Film Evaluation team to watch and select documentaries suitable for classroom use.  The interns will receive training on the film evaluation process and how to utilize our tools and database. This is a great opportunity to gain exposure to social justice issues across the globe, and enhance critical thinking skills, computer/Google Docs proficiency, and organizational skills.
