Emerging Film Programmers


Bolton International Film Festival is looking for volunteer pre-programmers to join their shorts programming team for the next edition of the festival. The pre-programmers will be expected to watch approximately 20 short films each week between January and June. You will be required to rate each watched film using a digital scorecard, leave brief feedback and be available to attend occasional meetings (on Zoom ) to discuss your feedback and your recommendations.  Experience in pre-programming is not essential but a passion for watching films and being able\

to express your opinions on the films is a 'must have' to securing the position.

Candidates can be based anywhere (as watching films is done remotely) but you should be fluent in English. 

How do you apply?  Send a personal letter and CV to the festival at : 

We look forward to receiving your application!
