Programming advisories will meet virtually throughout the summer to deliberate and shape an exciting program for the upcoming festival. You will be provided with online screeners and are responsible for independently watching films and rating based on given criteria.
You may choose to apply to one or both of the advisory committees:
Watch and select films that touch on immigrant experiences, urbanization, inner-city issues, cultural identity and multicultural relationships by filmmakers of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Colour) and LGBTQ2S communities.
Short films suitable for Grades 1-8, featuring themes relevant to and engaging for youth. This program encourages self-representation and seeks to promote dialogue among students, educators, filmmakers and the wider community.
Potential advisory members must:
- Commit to watching and reviewing films
- Attend scheduled virtual meetings
- Be able to constructively critiques in a nuanced and concise manner
- Be comfortable adhering to the confidentiality of programming decisions
*Please note that this is a volunteer position and a $200 honorarium will be provided.
