Programming Coordinator

Hosted by Toronto Queer Film Festival

Established in 2016, the Toronto Queer Film Festival (TQFF) is a a collectively-run, artist-run, nonprofit organization located in Toronto, Ontario. TQFF was formed to provide community art exhibition space for experimental, contemporary, and/or social justice themed film and video art by queer filmmakers. TQFF support’s Toronto’s LGBTQ2S+ communities by providing a unique gathering space for marginalized and precarious queer and trans people, including Indigenous people, people of color, people with disabilities, and transgender people. 

The position of Programming Coordinator is principally responsible for logistical and administrative management of the Programming Dept under the guidance of the Artistic Director and Lead Programmer. They are also a key part of the Selection Committee and submission vetting process; ensuring that our long list is full of the absolute cream of the crop by lending their knowledge of media arts and the festival to discussions. On occasion they will assist other departments, such as Operations or Communications, with tasks related to programming - for example, editing a press release, collecting materials from filmmakers, and connecting with filmmakers over social media.

The Programming Coordinator, like all TQFF, will work remotely from home.

This position is funded by a program operated by Miziwie Biik. In order to be considered for this position, all candidates must be:

  • Registered or eligible to register at Miziwe Biik Aboriginal Employment and Training
  • Must be First Nation, Inuit or Metis
  • Must reside within the Greater Toronto Area (GTA)

COVID-19 info: TQFF operates remotely and will not be holding any in person activities or events until the pandemic is no longer a public health risk and it is demonstrably safe to meet indoors again. As many on our team are disabled and/or immunocompromised, our standards for reopening and operating again in public will be stringent, and all procedures will be adopted by staff consensus.
