About the Role

Together Films are looking for an executive to proactively lead screenings management for our non-theatrical (Community, Corporate, Educational & Festivals) screenings as well as manage film sales for minor territories.

The Sales Executive will oversee the sales pipeline across the Together Films impact slate & sales slate, enabling an effective and efficient turnover of non-theatrical screenings & minor territory sales (when directed). We are looking for someone with strong commercial intent but also with a desire to do good in the world. Your success in the role will drive Together Films’ global reach and expansion, as well as having a direct and positive influence on Human Rights, the climate crisis and other urgent world issues.

With impressive pitch skills and relationship building the Sales Executive will know how to best use tone of voice and their time to create the most impactful sales amongst community and corporate audiences.

This will entail liaising with our Strategy & Marketing departments on the film’s audience strategy, designing and activating plans, converting inbound and outbound screening requests to live and/or virtual screenings, as well as managing cold targets and converting them into sales. You will be liaising closely with the Marketing Team to book filmmaker Q&As where necessary.
