At 27 years old, the St. John’s International Women’s Film Festival is one of the longest-running women’s film festivals in the world. We support women in film and television in Newfoundland and Labrador and around the world with our annual five-day Film Festival and Film Industry Forum; our annual Scene & Heard Film Industry Conference; our year-round FRAMED Film Education Series; our cross-provincial Films On The Go tour; and our one-off screenings and workshops.
We’re looking for the perfect student to help us build our official Program Guide.
Each year, we publish a 100-page Program Guide which includes film and workshop descriptions, schedules, and delegate bios. It also includes ads and welcome messages from Festival and Forum supporters. Our Program Coordinator will work with our Executive Director to collect ads and messages from Festival sponsors, sell advertising space to local businesses, and put together our famous Festival swag bags. In some cases the student might also work on designing advertisements using InDesign and Photoshop.
This is a great opportunity to get to know the local film industry, and to gain experience with graphic design programs.
This position is offered through the Canada Summer Jobs program. Applicants must have been full-time students in the Winter 2015 – 2016 semester, be heading back into full-time studies this Fall and must be between the ages of 15 and 30.
The ideal candidate for this position is friendly, flexible, motivated and independent, with an interest in film, women’s issues and graphic design. This position requires strong organizational instincts, exceptional communication skills and a proficiency with office software such as Google Drive. Familiarity with graphic design programs like InDesign and Photoshop is an asset.
People of all genders are encouraged to apply.
