New York International Children’s Film Festival (NYICFF) is seeking a Manager of Development and Communications to join its small - but mightily passionate and industrious - team of film, media, and arts and culture champions. Under the guidance of the Executive Director, the Manager of Development and Communications will spearhead all of the organization’s fundraising efforts including the cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship of a portfolio of government, foundation, corporate, and individual donors. The manager will also oversee the planning and execution of the organization’s annual benefit event and membership drive. The manager will work closely with the Director of Programming, Education Manager, and other departments to ensure that all facets of the organization are adequately funded and communicated effectively to potential and existing funders.
This is an opportunity for a motivated and high-energy self-starter who enjoys working with a close-knit team, but who also craves taking the reins on initiatives and taking bold strides on their own. There is enormous potential to create meaningful and far-reaching impact in this role: though small in staff, ours is an organization that is generating significant growth each year with an ever-expanding national footprint among families, filmmakers, and the entertainment industry.
NYICFF is a year-round nonprofit arts organization dedicated to building a dynamic film culture for families and classrooms. Established in 1997, NYICFF delivers impactful programming to children, students, families, educators, filmmakers and media arts professionals through its four core activities: its annual, Oscar®-qualifying NYC film festival; its city-wide media arts and literacy program, Film-Ed national screening program NYICFF Kid Flicks, serving major regional cultural institutions, cinemas, and museums; and its Industry Forum, bringing together professionals at all stages of their careers to discuss actionable ideas that foster a more equitable and inclusive community both on screen and behind the scenes. We believe in the power of film as a path to understanding for young people to discover the reality of others as well as their own communities and identities. As such, diversity, equity, and inclusion are integral to everything that we do.

The Manager of Development and Communications position is a full-time role, with occasional evening and weekend commitments. The ideal candidate will be based in or willing to relocate to New York City, and is enthusiastic about working with people of all ages and on-site and travel across the five boroughs.
