Emerging Programmers


Bolton International Film Festival is looking for volunteer pre-programmers to join their shorts programming team for the 2024 edition of the festival. Film Programmers will be expected to watch an average of 250 short films between November 2023 and June 2024. You will be required to rate each watched film, leave brief feedback and be available to attend occasional meetings (on Zoom or in person) to discuss your feedback and recommendations. 

Experience in pre-programming is not essential to the role but a passion for watching films and being able to vocalise your thoughts 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!
