About the Internship Program
Film Festival Interns help us identify outstanding short films to invite to the annual MY HERO International Film Festival, improve our website, and promote the festival in social media. Additionally, the program is a chance for the interns to build their own portfolio's, as they are given the opportunity to create their own films and other media.

I'm Jennifer Bose and I am currently pursuing a degree in animation at Woodbury University. I am Chinese-Filipino, born and raised in the Bay Area of California. I enjoy drawing and playing video games in my free time when I'm not playing with my two dogs. In animation, I am most interested in character design and visual effects.
I’m a Classics major at Skidmore College, and I just spent a semester studying film production at London College of Communications, a branch of University of the Arts London. I’ve been creating my own films since 2015, including an hour long documentary on student voices in the anti-gun violence movement in 2018. I’m an aspiring screenwriter and director with a passion for both storytelling and activism.

I'm a big fan of poetry, sunsets, coffee, and video games! If I'm not at my desk drawing something new, you can most likely find me playing some tunes on my bright pink ukulele or playing a video game with my friends. I will be completing my undergraduate studies in 2021 with the aspirations of having my stories be told through art and writing.

My name is Kitty and I am currently a student at the University of Leeds studying Music and Philosophy.
