PUBLIC SQUARE FILMS, a Peabody Award-winning and Oscar-nominated New York City-based production company, is excited to announce a paid fellowship for an exceptional candidate seeking to gain experience in impact and engagement for a major feature documentary. Public Square Films tells stories that ensure that LGBTQ+ history — and the people who make it — are remembered and celebrated for their brave and invaluable contributions to social justice and political change. The Marsha P. Johnson Fellowship is established to provide hands-on experience to an early-career QTGNC (Queer, Transgender, Gender Non-Conforming) filmmaker or impact producer of color.

What will you do as an Impact Campaign Fellow?

  • Partner Communications: Maintain ongoing communications with the impact campaign’s global NGO partners to coordinate their participation in and contributions to the campaign.
  • Social Media Community Engagement: Identify and share content via our social media platforms (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) to maintain, grow, and mobilize our online community to achieve our impact and marketing objectives.
  • Website Content Creation: Make updates to the film website, including screenings, news clips, and opportunities for participation in achieving the goals of the film’s impact campaign.

Are you our ideal candidate?

  • You have a demonstrated interest in filmmaking and the desire to learn more.
  • You care about social and policy change, which is reflected in your professional, academic, volunteer and/or "extra-curricular" activities.
  • You trust your instincts, are a self-starter, and know how to make smart decisions independently.
  • You are curious and driven by a desire to teach yourself and to learn from others.
  • You can communicate your ideas effectively in writing and in conversation.
  • You have experience with online content management systems.
  • You have worked with a variety of stakeholders.
  • You take great pride in the quality of your work.
  • You are willing to take a risk, and you can still crack a joke while under pressure.
