I couldn’t think of any picture better to describe my internship experience as an event planner, than one of the parties themselves. This was the opening night of the festival and about sums up the hectic, chaotic adventure that was my summer. Decorating, feeding, and entertaining the masses of people who attended our events required the hands and brains of an army. I don’t know how it all came together, but the picture above captures the success of the hard work behind the scenes. When I look at this photo, I don’t think about the films showing at the State Theatre or even the founder himself. I think of all the unpaid interns who spent 40 hours a week making this happen.
