Job Description

After a hugely successful pilot project in 2019 involving OSCAR-winners, feature film premieres and a host of international filmmaker judges, social enterprise Screen Northants is running its first full Northampton Film Festival in 2021.  We have big ambitions for the festival which is designed to celebrate Northampton and Northamptonshire's culture and creativity, and help make the Film Industry more accessible, so we are looking for someone who shares those values.

We are looking for someone to assist us with the Marketing and Admin in the run up to the 2021 festival in May 2021.

Working 28 hours a week over 10 weeks you will help us with the festival marketing strategy which heavily involves social media and video.  This will include promoting the festival itself and working with our sponsors and supporters, but also promoting our schools' competition and our monthly 48hr film challenges, and liaising with all the different types of people and organisations that engage with us through the festival.  You will assist in organising screening and events both physical and virtual, and liaising with entrants to our short film competition. 

The ideal candidate would be very organised, a good communicator with a professional attitude, and happy to get on the phone as well as compose well written emails, someone who understands social media, has an eye for design, has an interest in Film, a can do attitude and some video production skills (at whatever level and could be animation, editing or camera work for example).  There's a lot going on with the festival but we will play to the successful applicants's strengths.
