The philosophy here is to consciously connect study with practice and practice with study! The IIACI Institute has launched an innovative academic internship program for students, recent grads,
and students who may not be currently enrolled but fall into the 'twenty-something' generation. The Institute for Interdisciplinary Art and Creative Intelligence (IIACI) and Dr. Janeann Dill created
an innovative academic program of IIACI Academic Interns™ to participate in the Worldwide Student Intensive Program at the American Pavilion in the Cannes and Venice Film Festivals. The IIACI
ACADEMIC INTERNSHIPS™ program is an exciting fee-based study program set within the professional festival environment. Dr. Janeann Dill is the IIACI ACADEMIC INTERNSHIP™ Founding Director &
Faculty. Dill is a university professor who earned a Ph.D. in Communications (EGS-Swiss Institute, Media Philosophy), MFA in Experimental Animation (CalArts), MA in Painting and Drawing (Vanderbilt
University) and a Certificate in Entertainment Studies (UCLA: Film, Television, Video and New Media). For more info on the Institute or the program, go to the institute website:
Today has probably been one of the hottest days yet, and of course I decide to walk to work. It's most definitely a beautiful walk but it took a little longer than expected so I had to start walking a little faster. By the time I arrived at work I was sweating. With only one more day left, the pavilion is starting to wind down and empty out. Less and less people are coming in and it is starting to fill up with staff and interns. These past two weeks have been some of the greatest weeks of my life and I hope to come back again next year. Though it has been a wonderful experience, I am definitely exhausted and looking forward to sleeping when I get home. From yachts, to red carpets, to celebrities and VIP rooms, there is not much more I could do to make this trip any better. It is amazing how quickly these past 2 weeks have flown by but it is now catching up to my health. I'm exhausted and looking forward to arriving back home, getting some rest, and getting my body back to par. Not only am I ready to get some energy back but I am looking forward to starting my next internship with Turner Broadcast in Atlanta the first of June.
