Film & Video in New Zealand
Personalize Your Internship Experience
Work directly with the WI team to secure an international internship in your chosen field. Our global expertise and professional network will be put to work in finding the right fit for you and your host organization. It’s no secret that New Zealand is home to some of the globe’s most amazing landscapes (a la the Lord of the Rings trilogy), but did you know our placement city Wellington is considered the film capital of New Zealand? Whatever your style, New Zealand is ideal for your next film or videography internship. Let’s find your view!
While New Zealand has only been fairly recently recognized for its media arts scene through the likes of Lord of the Rings, digital arts like film and video have been thriving for decades in one of the world’s most scenic countries. Between the cultural and artistic hub of Wellington, considered New Zealand’s “San Francisco,” and the country’s breathtaking landscapes, you’ll have plenty to point your lens at on your film and video internship. While we can’t exactly guarantee a placement at Peter Jackson’s side, we also won’t rule that out; our plugged-in placement team has great industry connections that could get you on a big budget production, but we’re just as likely to get you in with a small studio to best refine your craft. A custom internship in film and video in New Zealand with World Internships is the best way to ensure your time on both ends of the lens is as rewarding and enjoyable as possible.

About Your Accomodation
An apartment shared with other interns in the city means you’ll be shopping for and preparing your own meals, and sharing cleaning duties and communal living spaces. World Internships can arrange safe and secure apartment housing for you within a reasonable commute time to your internship site.
Independent housing allows you to opt out of our arranged accommodation options (and the associated fees) and find your own. This option works best when you have friends or family members living in your destination, or a strong housing lead that you feel comfortable pursuing.
