Youth Outreach & Internship 2018 Program


Our mission is to provide youth and young adults a creative outlet in the media and entertainment industry.


The participants not only will attend free seminars and workshops but will have an opportunity to gain experience by volunteering as assistants to the GIFF-CON film crew during the festival. They also will help with pre-production of the festival by creating social media promos and buzz, as well as promotional reels for the festival – a great addition to their resumes. 

Festival organizers also will work with media arts directors at the Galveston Independent School District and Galveston County to determine more ways that the Galveston Island Film Festival will benefit the youth and young adults of the Island community and the county.
