We are looking for students with great organizational and communication skills, an interest in non-profit business, and the ability to take on new projects and manage them from start to finish. Experience working with databases is always a plus. 

We are NOT looking for students that would rather be making movies, though we encourage those filmmakers to submit their films.

The internships offered at deadCenter are unpaid. Fall and spring internships must be coordinated through a university or college for class credit. Class credit is optional for the summer internships.


Applications must be completed online with all requested materials emailed by the dates below:

  • January 15 for a spring internship
  • April 1st for a summer internship
  • August 1st for a fall internship

All applicants will be notified of the decision within two weeks after the submission deadline. Please direct all questions to alyx@deadcenterfilm.org or 405.246.9233



We've got a lot of information to organize and communicate over a very small period of time. Assist with the compilation of content for the Festival guide, update the website and online scheduler, and work within FilmFreeway to ensure that filmmakers have the best possible experience before the Festival. Help us keep the many parts of deadCenter moving with your keen eye and attention to detail!


Are you a people-person with a heart to serve? At its heart (or center...), deadCenter is made up of people: filmmakers, festival-goers, sponsors, etc. This internship focuses on the customer service, donor management, and personal attention that makes deadCenter one of the Top 20 Coolest Festivals in the World. 

Data WizardS

If you love information and putting things into spreadsheets gives you an eerie sense of calm, this internship is your happy place. Learn how to use Salesforce, one of the top CRMs worldwide, and see how deadCenter uses the system to digitize our records and streamline our processes. There's room for innovation too! You don't need to be a developer, just someone with an intermediate knowledge of computers  (HTML and basic logic are really helpful), and a passion for creative problem-solving. 


A complete application includes the following materials:

  • Completed registration form
  • Cover letter explaining your interest in interning with deadCenter
  • Resumé with GPA and two references
  • For summer, a Letter of Recommendation from your current or previous employer is also required. Please mail letter of recommendation to: deadCenter Film, 726 W. Sheridan, Suite 170, Oklahoma City, OK 73102 or email to alyx@deadcenterfilm.org
