Salary: French internship minimum wage (26,25 euros per day)
Festival Scope first began in 2010 with the platform Festival Scope Pro, which provides festivals on demand to professionals only. Films from 120 of the most prestigious international festivals are presented in order to help their programming and distribution. This has fortunately allowed them to become one of the go-to hubs of the industry.
Since then, they decided to bring similar curated art-house content to a larger public. In 2016, they introduced Festival Scope, a platform that programs films from international festivals for film lovers worldwide.
It also co-organises with ARTE the ArteKino Festival, a pan-European film festival available online.
