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.
Reporting to the Lead Programmer, the Animation Workshop Project Manager is responsible for key tasks related to the launch and execution of TQFF’s upcoming workshop intensive for queer and trans animators. They will be responsible for all of the day to day organizing of the workshop, including drafting the call for participants and leading the selection committee. They will also be responsible for providing ongoing support to the workshop instructors and participants, as well as for contracts and collection of final works/deliverables. On occasion they will assist other departments, such as Operations or Communications, with tasks related to the workshop - for example, editing a press release and collecting materials from participants.
The Animation Workshop Project Manager, like all TQFF staff, will work remotely from home.
