Biennale College is La Biennale di Venezia’s project dedicated to the education of young people in the artistic fields and in the activities of the organizational structure of the Biennale.
Encouraging young talents, offering them the opportunity to work side by side with the masters to develop “creations” that will be part of our Artistic Programs: this is the spirit of the Biennale College, a well-fitted bridge that allows young people who wish to engage in one of the arts to do so under the finest conditions that an international institution can offer.
University students can improve their university education through the internship experience of the Biennale College - Internships.
The 12 new projects have been selected for the seventh edition of Biennale College Cinema 2018/19, submitted by teams composed of directors and producers who took part in the first 10-day workshop held in Venice from October 6th to 15th 2018.

The programme for the Biennale College – Internships for the period end of January – May 2019 is online.
An on-field learning experience, organized as a curriculum-required internship for undergraduate or graduate students enrolled in university who wish to enrich their training in the fields of organization, management, administration, technical support, editorial work, communication, etc., in other words, the work that is done every day within the organizational structure of the Biennale di Venezia.
Just like a “College” experience, the young people selected for the internship are supervised individually in their training, stimulated and encouraged to seek the greatest benefit from the moment they arrive to the last day of their internship, which will also include social events designed to share experiences and create an active community.
The call is reserved for university students enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate programme of a University based in Italy.
Starting from mid-February 2019 the internship programme for the following months will be published.
