Film Internship in Cannes

Hi friends! Earlier this semester, I had the wonderful opportunity to participate in UCF's Campus Movie Fest with a few of my very good friends. We had one week to put together a 5-minute short film. That week made me realize what potential I had for writing and directing my own projects. While our film did not get selected to be screened from the hundreds here at UCF, it did inspire me to seek more filmmaking opportunities with my remaining time as a student. This led me to one of the biggest sponsors for CMF, the Creative Mind Group.  Creative Mind Group hosts many different film and industry internships all over the world. This year, they will host a Networking internship in Cannes, France, home of the prestigious International Cannes Film Festival. When I initially saw the application and program fees for the internship in Cannes, I was immediately discouraged because I knew it was a long shot. Doubts about my work slowly began seeping in and I gave up. The day after the deadline was due, a rep from the program emailed me and encouraged me to still submit for the internship. With renewed energy, I made the video you just viewed and sent my application with baited breath. Just less than a week later, I received an acceptance letter for the Networking program from the same rep! I am honored that the Creative Mind Group believed enough in my potential to offer me a spot, but now with your help, I hope to take advantage of this amazing opportunity and truly SHINE! This is an educational experience that could not just change my life, but the future of my entire career. And that's a chance that is second to none. #yesPaigeCannes #youngHollywood
