Flatpack Projects Trustees

Flatpack Projects, Open (available to travel to Birmingham minimum 4 times a year)

N/A

It’s been an exciting couple of years for the team over at Flatpack HQ. Having celebrated the tenth edition of Flatpack Film Festival – our boundary-hopping annual jamboree – and secured charitable status, we’ve since begun working with the British Film Institute on a strategic region-wide initiative as part of the Film Audience Network, and this summer we were delighted to join the Arts Council National Portfolio for the first time.

Although we have grown plenty since starting out as a regular gathering in a Digbeth pub, the heart of what we do has remained constant: bringing people together; showing them things they wouldn’t otherwise get to see; celebrating the fertile, fuzzy area where film meets other artforms.

We have big ambitions for the next few years, and we are currently seeking new Trustees to join the Flatpack board, who will continue to play a really important part in guiding us on our journey. In particular, we’re after people with significant experience of one or more of the following areas:

  • Architecture and property
  • Visual art
  • Education/youth sector
  • Regional economic agenda
  • Finance
  • HR

The board of trustees meets no fewer than four times per year at the Flatpack office in Birmingham. Trustees may serve for up to two terms of three years, and priority will be given to ensuring the cultural and gender diversity of the board.

How to apply

Please send a CV and a brief supporting statement outlining your interest in and suitability for the role to abbe@flatpackfestival.org.uk
Interviews: w/c 2 October 2017

The closing date for applications is Monday 4 September 2017

Festival Volunteers

Cambridge Film Festival, Cambridge

N/A

Volunteering is a great way to get involved with the 37th Cambridge Film Festival! You can volunteer for Movies on the Meadows (4 days film festival on the August Bank holiday weekend) or for the festival itself (19th to 26th October 2017) or for both! Volunteer duties are extremely varied according to which event you volunteer for but they all include: ushering at screenings, assisting with marketing activities, assisting the hospitality team as well as runner tasks (including general office and front-of-house duties) to keep the Festival running smoothly. 

Who is eligible to volunteer?

Firstly volunteers must be aged 18 or older.

Secondly, you must be local to Cambridge. We cannot provide accommodation and cannot usually provide travel arrangements.

Thirdly, you should be available on the dates of the event you wish to volunteer at, and be aware that extra commitment may be involved in the form of briefing and/or training sessions prior to the event.

The attributes we seek in applicants because we consider them vital to a good volunteer are:

We have volunteers from a variety of backgrounds, a range of ages and ethnicities, and do not discriminate.

Perks: 

Most of our volunteers appreciate the opportunity to network but free tickets to the festival films is always listed as the No1 perk! When we asked last year's volunteers what they liked best about their experience, here is what they said:

"The variety, and chance to see how a cinema works from the inside (as usher), the opportunity to learn about new films, and see new films"

"Meeting so many cinema-related people (actors, directors, journalists)"

"The free screenings when not on duty, really nice to see some incredible films"

How to apply?
Please visit the volunteer page on our website where you can fill an application and do not hesitate to drop us a line on cristina@cambridgefilmtrust.org.uk if you have any questions.

We look forward to welcoming you as part of the team!
