Participant believes that a good story well told can truly make a difference in how one sees the world. Whether it is a feature film, documentary or other form of media, Participant exists to tell compelling, entertaining stories that also create awareness of the real issues that shape our lives.
Participant Media is seeking students interested in the creation and implementation of social action campaigns for features and documentaries. Participant’s social action campaigns are designed to give voice to the issues that resonate in our films. We team with social sector organizations, non-profits and corporations who are committed to creating an open forum for discussion and education and who can, with Participant, offer specific ways for audience members to get involved. These include action kits, screening programs, educational curriculums and classes, house parties, seminars, panels, and other activities, including our ongoing “legacy” programs. In addition to having the opportunity to help build these campaigns, by assisting with issue-based research and outreach to NGOs and advocates, interns will learn about the varied avenues by which outreach happens, the many networks established around causes and how to take action for the causes they care about.
