About Historic Films

Historic Films maintains an extensive archive of vintage television shows, commercials, newsreels, feature films and more. The company owns or controls over 45,000 hours of footage spanning more than a century. Historic Films licenses its clips to film and television producers, advertising agencies and news organizations.

For the most part, interns work in the research department. They conduct searches for footage in the computer database, locate and compile clips for screening cassettes and manage the delivery of tapes to Historic Films' clients.


Open to current college students, recent college graduates and grad students. Interns must have excellent English language skills. U.S. citizens are preferred.
