I first began my event planning experience through the All-American High School Film Festival just four years ago in New York City. I began as a volunteer, helping to research possible marketing outlets and collaborating with the professional staff to organize and coordinate the weekend’s events.
During my sophomore year, I had the opportunity to work with the AAHSFF staff as a social media intern and continue to work with the festival in booking guests and coordinating events aside from the film screenings. My responsibilities and goals as a social media intern are listed below.
- Utilize social media, including twitter, Facebook and Instagram to connect with media companies and audiences
- Coordinate events, such as panels and film screening logistics, in collaboration with the staff
- Research and outreach to target audiences
- Assist with volunteer recruitment
