We are looking for a few film submission screeners, with the potential for a possible Volunteer Programming Associate position if eligible after a minimum of 1 year on the screening committee, to join our programming ITWIFF 2021 and beyond.

Our volunteer pre-screening committees assist with the viewing of films or submitted to Imagine This Women’s Film Festival. The programming staff carefully selects applicants based on their knowledge and interest in film and their strength in writing and film analysis. The ITWIFF considers hundreds of film submissions internationally each year, each viewed multiple times by different screeners. The primary task of a committee member is to thoughtfully view and identify films of interest to the ITWIFF programming staff.

Whether you have a background in film or are just a dedicated cinephile, we’re always looking for a diverse group of people who love movies and don’t mind spending some free time watching and reviewing unique and thought-provoking festival submissions from voices around the world.
