Cork Film Festival is seeking to expand its Submissions Pre-Selection Viewing Team to meet the increasing demand of film submissions. They are looking for keen eyes with a love and knowledge of film of all genres. Perhaps you are an MA student of film, an academic, or working in the film/visual arts sector, with well-developed critical skills and a willingness to donate your time to viewing short films from across the globe.
Viewers must be able to commit to watching a minimum of assigned 20 short films per week, which will range in length from 1 minute to 35 minutes, and to rate them on the Festivals’ online submissions platform, FilmFreeway. Viewing will take place between March and August.
Please note that this is an unpaid volunteer role, with support provided by the programming team and administrator. Submitting filmmakers are not eligible to apply. Viewers are gratefully acknowledged in the Festival Brochure and Festival Website, and will receive a complimentary Season Pass to the 2019 Festival.
To apply, please submit a short CV of relevant experience and a one-page covering letter explaining your suitability as a potential CFF Viewer, to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Shortlisted applicants will then be asked to review sample short films and participate in a telephone interview.
