AmPav Worldwide Student Program

Jumpstart your Career!


Joining Cannes, France and Venice, Italy, the latest destination to welcome AmPav students is... Austin, Texas! This 5 day program will focus on the Film & TV portion of the South by Southwest Festival.


Since 1989, AmPav has offered students the opportunity to attend the Cannes International Film Festival, participating in internships, panels, roundtables, networking events, and the world's largest film market.


After touring local markets and vineyards, learn how to prepare meals for AmPav’s restaurant and event menus for VIP guests, all from our beachside venue!


The American Pavilion’s esteemed Worldwide Student Program now includes the world’s oldest festival among its offerings. Now YOU can deepen your understanding of film festivals and the film industry as part of The American Pavilion’s Venice Intensive!

The American Pavilion Student Program sparked a fire that has become the work of my life, and I will always be grateful for that first access into a world I thought was totally inaccessible to me. Thank you, and carry on!"
