Metro Cinema is Edmonton’s community movie house, dedicated to the presentation of film and video in many forms. We program and host a thousand events each year at the historic Garneau Theatre.
Metro is seeking an engaged and passionate student to spend a summer helping to shape the future of Metro. The Outreach Coordinator will be involved both hands-on in assisting with film screenings and live events, with building connections with community groups and schools, and with a variety of administrative support tasks. Exact duties will be tailored, as much as possible, to the successful applicants’ specific skills and interests. This position will run approximately 16 weeks, starting on or about May 2nd.
The successful applicant will be comfortable with both self-directed and team-based work environments, have experience with event management and possess strong oral and written communications skills. A familiarity with the film industry, markeeting and communications systems, and volunteer management are all assets but not required.
This position may be funded in part through the Canada Summer Jobs Program or the Student Temporary Employment Program. Special consideration may be given to full time students returning for study in the fall, and those who otherwise meet the eligibility of the programs.
