Alternate Realities Talent Market Coordinator

Sheffield Doc/Fest is recruiting for an essential role within the Marketplace & Talent team, which exists to foster collaborations between creatives and organisations focused on using digital technologies to push storytelling in exciting new directions. The market is for discussing new projects that are interactive, immersive, virtual reality, augmented reality, web-doc, games, 360-video, live performance, motion comic, room-scale experience and/or installation.
The Alternate Realities Talent Market runs parallel to our flagship pitching platform, MeetMarket. Twenty-five online, interactive and virtual reality project groups will be selected from submissions to hold one-to-one meetings with funders and advisors, including commissioners, broadcasters, arts organisations, online platforms, NGOs and other experts from across the world. This is not a one-size-fits-all market; meetings are carefully match made taking into account desires from both sides of the table. This role coordinates all aspects of the Alternate Realities Talent Market.
The selected candidate will have a passion for, and working knowledge of, storytelling through immersive technology, and will be production minded, with high attention to detail, consistent follow-through and experience in organising events with many parts. Working together with the Director of Marketplace & Talent, the successful candidate will get involved from the selection and programming stage and coordinate for the department through production, through to delivery.
