XR and Immersive Marketing Lead
BFI London Film Festival
Salary: Fixed fee up to £8,000
Using cinema as a jumping off point, the 2020 BFI London Film Festival launches a new programming strand, LFF Expanded, which showcases XR and Immersive work, including VR, AR, MR, live cinema and immersive or experiential performance.
The BFI is looking to engage an XR and Immersive Marketing Lead to play a key role in establishing this new part of the LFF, leveraging their existing network of contacts to broker new partnerships, and work closely with internal and external stakeholders as well as related industry professionals to raise awareness of this new strand amongst existing, new and specialist audiences.
You will need to have significant experience in marketing or related discipline in moving image especially in relation to immersive, film, artists’ work, games and other creative technologies.
The successful candidate will be paid a fee up to £8,000 for work completed towards the XR programme. Payments will be agreed against set objectives throughout the course of the contract.
In keeping with the BFI London Film Festival’s diverse film programme, and with an acknowledgement of the imbalances in representation in the film industry, we strongly encourage applications from all sectors of society to accurately reflect the local and wider demographic, and especially from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates, and those who consider themselves to be disabled. Under the BFI’s guaranteed interview scheme applicants who self-identify as BAME and/or disabled and demonstrate that they meet the minimum requirements will be invited to interview.
Further details about the post can be obtained by visiting the BFI website.
Interviews will be held on Monday 10 August 2020.
