Image Permanence Institute Selznick School Internship

Selznick School of Film PreservationThe L. Jeffrey Selznick School of Film Preservation in cooperation with the Image Permanence Institute has established the Image Permanence Institute Selznick School Internship. Since the late 1980s, the Image Permanence Institute has focused on developing strategies for the preservation of imaging materials, most notably photographic materials. Work on film has been an integral part of the Image Permanence Institute's research efforts over the years.

The purpose of the Internship is to give a student of merit who is committed to the preservation of moving images the opportunity to acquire practical experience in preservation research, which in turn will support the continued development of leaders in the field of moving image archiving and conservation.

In addition, the student will work on existing projects or, if appropriate, do research under the guidance of the Image Permanence Institute staff.
