Upstander Project is seeking a filmmaker to join our team as a key creative on an upcoming film project.


Requirements and Candidate Profile:

  • 2-3 years experience as a professional filmmaker as a DP, producer, and/or director;
  • Deeply rooted in Ckuwaponakik (the Dawn land)


Ideal Candidate:

  • Demonstrated experience and a strong interest in working with Native American people and their communities.
  • Great project management skills
  • Committed to thinking in new ways about representations of Indigenous experiences in film;
  • Committed to collaborating with Indigenous and First Nations communities;
  • Demonstrated experience contributing to/leading film projects developed in collaboration with Native community and Elders;
  • Knowledge of and sensitivity to historical and contemporary issues around representation of Indigenous people in film;
  • Team-oriented and collaborative, excited to work with a diverse and cross-cultural team of creatives and reach decisions through deep listening and consensus-building.


About the Project

Before Emmet, Trayvon and Breonna lived Margaret Moxa. Her life of peacemaking makes for an epic tale that would surpass even the mythical Paul Revere – if not for the colonial government that put a price on Margaret’s head.


Duration

We seek a collaborator for an initial 3-month contract to begin exploring ideas together. The project is expected to last several years and we hope this collaboration will blossom and continue for years to come.


How to Apply

Request more information about the project at info@upstanderproject.org. Then please submit a work sample, cover letter that describes your role in creating the sample, and a resume to: info@upstanderproject.org.


Hours

Flexible 10-15 hours per week during the first 3 months, with room to grow in the future, based on development of the project.


Compensation & Benefits

Hourly rate commensurate with experience and we offer unlimited paid sick and vacation time.
