The F.I.L.M. program still has a few places available on a 10-month MICT Seta Internship from 1 November 2012 to 31 August 2013 with a basic stipend of R3500 per month. Additional monthly top-ups are negotiated at the discretion of the production companies and film productions where the trainees are placed.
The Internship is a learning program combining structured learning (which we provide) and a practical, hands-on experiential learning, work experience component (which the company and/ or productions provide), leading to a registered qualification.
Our focus is primarily, but not exclusively on previously disadvantaged individuals. We are also looking for eligible disabled people for the Internship.
The F.I.L.M. program works hand-in-hand with partner companies across the industry offering trainees the opportunity to grow and gain priceless experiential learning opportunities, working hands-on, on films, television and in production companies in the film and electronic media industries.
The theoretical component of the Internship will require 1-2 days per month formal work-shopping & training with F.I.L.M. The remainder will be fulfilled through the submission of a Portfolio of Evidence relating to your hands-on work experience.
Entry-level requirements are broad to allow eligible, previously disadvantaged individuals to qualify.
Applicants require either: A Grade 12 Certificate National Certificate at NQF Level 4; Or a post-Matric tertiary education qualification in film, electronic & digital media. Or are: Studying towards said tertiary qualification and have withdrawn for financial reasons.

Applicants should moreover have experience in, be passionate about or fully committed to film, electronic & digital media as a sector skills choice. Applicants merely `seeking a job’ will not be considered.
