MIAMI (CBSMiami) — College students aspiring for careers in film and entertainment will soon have a chance to work with industry leaders across South Florida.

On Monday, the Miami-Dade Film & Entertainment Advisory Board and the Miami-Dade Office of Film & Entertainment will launch an internship program that connects film and entertainment majors at local colleges with production and related companies in the industry.

The program is open to companies involved in film production, still photography, camera equipment, audio/visual, digital media, etc.

“The film and entertainment industry in South Florida has grown tremendously in the past few years and infuses millions of dollars into our local economy.  Students are the future of the industry and we want to help them learn the business with local companies contributing to the growth of local industry talent and workforce.  By facilitating this process, the program will improve job creation through training and networking opportunities,” Miami-Dade County Film and Entertainment Liaison, Sandy Lighterman said.
