A film enthusiast or filmmaker is needed as a coordinator for a free community cinema project in Exeter for socially marginalised people.
Open Cinema, which runs free community cinemas, is working with Exeter’s X centre, a support service for vulnerable young people and adults, to run a series of film events in the city.
The project needs a coordinator to set up a film screening (using one of Open Cinema’s specially programmed film seasons), welcome and chat to members about the film, supervise Open Cinema volunteers, lead post-film discussions and take requests for future films to screen.
It would take around three hours per week (one evening).
The role requires someone who is passionate about film and able to share this interest with others, especially with young people. Experience of working with young people and teenagers would be very helpful, and a CRB check is essential.
Eleanor Dean of Open Cinema told D+CFilm: “For the right candidate, coordinating the project will be an exciting and rewarding experience, as they’ll be helping us to deliver a great cinema service that will bring film into the lives of local young people.
“We also urgently need local filmmakers and film industry professionals who would like to run filmmaking projects at the new centre, helping members to make their own short films. Any local filmmakers who would like to screen their own work and talk about it at the centre would also be very welcome.”
