Do you have a passion for working with youth in a creative environment? Love video production and/or are a lover of independent films? Would you enjoy a seasonal (fall/winter) contract with the opportunity to grow with the position, meet interesting artistic people, and have a lot of fun?
If you answered yes to the above questions, then this position might be for you! The Powell River Film Festival is seeking to hire a Youth Program Assistant Coordinator. The position supports the Film Festival’s youth programs (including the 5-Minute Film Contest and school screenings) and takes the lead on event planning for the Adventures in Film Camp (a 3.5-day experiential arts camp for youth) which is hosted during the annual film festival.
Skills required include: experience in event planning/coordination, ability to work both independently and within a dynamic team, attention to detail, big picture planning, great communication (verbal, written, and social media), marketing, and more. Experience working with youth and film/video production is definitely an asset.
Perks include: collaborating with wonderful film/video/animation mentors and teachers from around the province, meeting and supporting a dynamic group of young creatives, coordinating presentations from visiting filmmakers, free access to the film festival screenings, and the opportunity to grow with the position (ie the possibility to go from Assistant to Coordinator in one year, to work in spring/summer, to expand the programs, etc.)
