Hollywood Internships for AAPI Students

Monday, February 13, 2022 | 5 – 6:30 PM | Online

Recent anti-Asian violence has drawn attention to the ways that Asians and Asian Americans are often excluded from America's cultural imaginary. We want to help change that and this semester will be launching our AAPI Media Creatives fellowships [LINK] to change the ecosystem of cultural production. 

Join AAPI industry leaders Jason Lin (Producer, Story Arch Pictures), Lacy Lew Nguyen Wright (Executive Director, Hillman Grad Productions), and Laura Reddy (Manager, Range Media Partners) for a conversation on what it means to make your way in Hollywood as an AAPI creative.

We’ll be discussing how to secure a summer internship in the media industry, how you can make the most of your internship, and how to leverage the experience to build a career in entertainment. Read more
