Jobs & Opportunities
New Promoter Scheme – EOI
We're one of three host organisations involved in this exciting training opportunity. Read on to find out more and how you can get involved.
This is an exciting training opportunity for people who’d like to better understand how to programme films for audiences in Scotland. The role aims to increase the number of film programmers who are marginalised working for cinemas, festivals and venues within Scotland. This includes those marginalised due to race, gender, sexuality, age, class, and disability. This comes from a recognition that these identities are not adequately represented within the Scottish screen industry.
This Scheme will be hosted between May-October 2020. Each candidate will work for one organisation but have the opportunity to meet and engage with others taking part in the scheme.**
The role will be office based and trainees will be supported to show films and create events, learning about distributor negotiations, screening formats, film transport, venue selection, audience development and how to create an effective marketing campaign.
In addition to this there will be training from film industry experts in selecting and showing films, creating and running events, organising festivals and marketing.
