The Independent Cinema Office (ICO) is the national organisation for the support and development of the independent cinema exhibition sector in the UK.
In addition to our national film programming, training and events, distribution and advice services for the independent cinema sector, the ICO is also the lead organisation for Film Hub South East.
Film Hub South East is part of the British Film Institute’s Film Audience Network (FAN). Supported by National Lottery funding, FAN is a unique collaboration made up of eight regional Hubs based around the UK.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a vibrant, creative team supporting film exhibition and production in the South East of England. The Film Hub South East Coordinator is the central point of contact for Film Hub South East members, which include cinemas, film festivals, film clubs and filmmakers, and is essential in communicating with them.
You will provide administrative support for funding member and filmmaker projects, organising events and meet-ups, and reporting to stakeholders. This is an excellent opportunity for someone keen to develop their knowledge of the film exhibition and production sectors, and of distributing funding.
The ICO is a small organisation and the individual we are seeking must be a self-starter. You will be responsible for administering support to exhibitors and filmmakers across the South East and must be a great communicator, planner and extremely organised.
In addition, we need someone who can help organise events and who shares our passion for cultural cinema. You don’t have to have worked in the cultural/arts sectors before but must be able to demonstrate transferable skills. You must be willing to work hard and juggle competing workloads.
In return, we can offer responsibility, training and development and the chance to work with a friendly, creative team at the forefront of independent cinema exhibition in the UK.
The ICO is an equal opportunity employer. We believe that a diverse workforce leads to an organisation that is more creative, innovative and gets better results. We want our workforce to represent the diversity of the people and communities in the UK and we want to see these reflected on our screens. We also want our workforce to be one where different experiences, expertise and perspectives are valued and where everyone is encouraged to grow and develop.
We particularly encourage applications from Black, Asian, ethnically diverse, and disabled candidates as they are underrepresented within the ICO.
