Industry Programmer

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 Artistic Director, the Industry Programmer is responsible for key tasks related to programming, outreach, and general operations of the annual industry symposium, working alongside the Lead Programmer and Artistic Director. They lead the industry Selection Committee and submission vetting process by ensuring that our symposium participants are 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 speakers, and connecting with speakers over social media.

The Industry Programmer, like all TQFF staff, will work remotely from home.

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. 

TQFF is an equal-opportunity employer. People with disabilities are especially encouraged to apply, and additional support for staff with disabilities is available.
