Images Festival is seeking a Guest Services Coordinator!

North America’s largest exhibitor of independent and experimental moving image culture is currently seeking a Guest Services Coordinator. The person in this position will work in a collaborative team environment to plan and execute a successful 2020 festival. Images Festival is a dynamic workplace and annual forum for excellence and innovation in contemporary media art.

The Images Festival, based in Toronto and in its 33rd year, features artist-made Canadian and international film and video and related new installations and live performances. This festival combines 7 days of theatrical screenings, events, artist talks, and live performances from April 16th-22nd, and gallery-based media art installations taking place annually from March to May. Images Festival is one of the most enduring and respected platforms in the world for the exhibition and discourse of independent film and media art. Created in 1987 as an alternative to the only other Toronto film festival at the time, Images has spent the last 32 years presenting media works that are challenging in their form and content. Images showcases the intersection of emerging and established practices and invites open critical dialogue in the film and media arts community around the political herstories of moving image production, distribution, exhibition, and representation. The festival includes screenings, exhibitions, performances, events, and educational initiatives, and is attended annually by more than 30,000 people. The openness of our guiding principles means that Images does not limit its programming to any particular type of filmmaking, but seeks to show works of every form, genre and style including video art, animation, documentary, narrative, structural and lyrical films and videos.
