Haiti Documentary Film on Child Labor: CREOLE TRANSLATORS NEEDED IMMEDIATELYBookmark This
Institute for Human and Community Development
Internship Type: Virtual
Application Deadline: Available Year-round
Position: 4 Part-time, Unpaid
DescriptionWho we are: The Institute for Human and Community Development (IHCD) is a Haitian non-profit organization that has served over 800 children living in slavery (knowns as "restaveks"), servitude, abject poverty, and dislocation since 1999. IHCD's mission is to integrate extremely marginalized children into mainstream Haitian society through the provision of a holistic package of educational, nutritional, social, and community services. See more at www.ihcd.org. IHCD's development team is based in Manhattan, New York, NY.
Documentary Film Project: IHCD has partnered with experienced film makers to create an original documentary focusing on the personalities, hopes and dreams of ten of our students. This is a nonprofit project aiming to raise awareness for a social justice cause. Interns will gain experience and a credit on the film, but will not be compensated monetarily.
UPDATE: The film makers will be entering this work into a competition and this means we are acutely in need of help from volunteer translators immediately.
Available Positions: We are seeking post-production interns to help with logging and transcribing. Interns will mostly work independently; we will send you footage and a template to get started, and you can send back logs and scripts to us. We plan on continuing shooting interviews in NYC, and there will be a chance to get involved for those shoots as well.
RequirementsExperience: Interns should have an interest in documentary filmmaking and human rights issues.
Language Skills: Haitian Creole required
