***UPDATE: Due to lingering interest and multiple inquiries, we’ve decided to extend this call for new board members to Monday, August 10, 2020!! How to apply remains unchanged; see all details below!
The WNDX Festival of Moving Image is seeking new board members to join our team! We are looking for individuals based full- or part-time in Treaty One Territory to contribute to the vision and trajectory of our festival. We’re currently looking for up to 4 individuals to serve in 2-year term positions on our board. WNDX intends to prioritize space for practicing artists and individuals with media-arts backgrounds. BIPOC applicants and those from underrepresented communities are strongly encouraged to apply.
Prospective WNDX board members should be able to commit to in-person attendance at a minimum of 4 board meetings annually, attendance at an annual general meeting, and at the festival proper, which takes place each fall. In-person attendance expectations are subject to change due to restrictions related to Covid-19. Additionally, we’ll be holding day-long “board retreats” in summer 2020/spring 2021, which will ideally be attended by all board members and WNDX staff.
WNDX board members can be expected to contribute to the management and overall vision of the festival by:
– participating in facilitated board meetings, contributing to meeting agendas and taking minutes.
– working with co-directors to offer feedback on shortlisted films, discuss programming priorities and vision for future on-and-off festival events.
– reviewing a selection of films proposed by co-artistic directors for jury prizes; WNDX currently offers 4 prizes annually.
– Participate in outreach initiatives for WNDX at community and cultural events locally and abroad.
