Staff members wanted for longtime collaboration!
TheBerlin Critics’ Week will take place for the sixth time from 19 to 27 February 2020 in Berlin. As a counterpart to the parallel Berlinale, the Week of Criticism, with its concentrated film and debate programme, invites the public to reflect together on films, criticism and cinema as a cultural space. What are the standards by which films are produced, selected and seen today? Where are films shown, by whom and under what conditions? Who writes about films and how? International guests enliven the discussion space and conduct interdisciplinary debates.
We want to strengthen our team for the upcoming edition of the event and are looking for ideal and practical support. We are looking for people who feel committed to the concerns of Critics’ Week and can imagine long-term cooperation with growing responsibility. In return, we offer an integration into the central aspects of the program work and strategic orientation of the event series. We usually use German in the office and it’s needed for all external aspects of the work. All positions are paid, depending on skill sets, workload and our funding situation (we’ll know more by mid-July). Let’s talk about details it in case you are interested.
