Film Pittsburgh, a nonprofit arts organization, seeks an Associate Programmer to help us broaden the diversity of films we screen. Candidates should have extensive experience programming films by filmmakers from diverse and often underrepresented communities including, Black (African American), Indigenous, LatinX, and Asian. Candidates should also have extensive existing contacts with filmmakers from these and other underrepresented communities.
The Associate Programmer will identify and build relationships with festivals, festival programmers, and staff; build and expand existing contact lists; and recruit high quality film submissions to help Film Pittsburgh showcase more diverse film programming. This is a contract position and will be conducted remotely. While they will work closely with the Director of Programming, candidates should be self-directed and able to work independently.
Film Pittsburgh presents independent film that encourages tolerance and understanding and celebrates diversity and our shared human experiences. Through four film festivals – Three Rivers, Pittsburgh Shorts, ReelAbilities, and JFilm – and Teen Screen, an educational program for middle and high-school students, we impact more than 20,000 people each year.
Film Pittsburgh is an equal opportunity employer. We strongly encourage applications from candidates who identify as BIPOC, women, and LGBTQIA, or who are members of other historically marginalized communities. Compensation is competitive with other similarly sized arts organizations.
