Job Opportunity: Lead Programmer

Hosted by Toronto Queer Film Festival

The Toronto Queer Film Festival is a nonprofit arts collective which launched in 2016 in response to an urgent need for exhibition space in Toronto for work by, and about marginalized queer and trans people. TQFF distinguishes itself from other Toronto cultural events that serve the LGBTQ+ community by focusing on experimental time-based media that challenges and expands social, political, and artistic conventions. Our curatorial mandate is to centre the programming of work by and about queer and trans people of colour, Indigenous people, and people with disabilities, as well as the work of local artists, low-income, DIY filmmakers, and emerging artists. The Toronto Queer Film festival is looking for a Lead Programmer with a minimum of two years of film festival curation experience who specializes in Indigenous and/or Black cinema, especially queer/trans/2 Spirit film and video. We will prioritize applicants with extensive knowledge of and/or lived experiences in these areas. Please submit all materials by Tuesday, September 6, 2022 at 5:00pm EDT to jon@torontoqueerfilmfest.com, as well as any requests for accommodation during the hiring process. Only applicants selected for an interview will be contacted. Everyone invited to interview will be paid $150.

Accessibility

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

COVID-19 info: TQFF is operating 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.
