Made in Wales Freelance Marketing Opportunity
Department: Film, Cinema and Film Hub Wales (FHW)
Contract: 10 days at a rate of £200 per day (November 2018 – March 2019)
Location: Flexible (remote working)
Responsible to: Film Hub Wales Strategic Manager
FHW celebrates Welsh identity, language and culture through film, year-round via our Strategaeth Gwnaethpwyd yng Nghymru. To date, we’ve supported the exhibition of over 70 unique Welsh features, 24 of which would not otherwise have had a theatrical release.
Our Welsh film review in 2017 confirmed that 8 Welsh films are released on average annually, including one Welsh language release. Many of these self-distribute. With limited marketing resources and competition for screen space but demand amongst both audiences and exhibitors, our aim is to increase access to Welsh film for all and ensure that we celebrate Welsh stories across Wales, the UK and internationally. Our ambition is for Welsh film to appear regularly alongside quality independent and foreign language titles worldwide.
Following on from the success of the BFI FAN New Release Strategy, which creates innovative, grassroots, press and marketing campaigns for new independent releases, we’re looking for a freelance marketer to work with exhibitors, filmmakers and distributors to apply this approach to Welsh film campaigns.
We want to share Welsh stories, whether it is screen heritage, Welsh talent, locations or language. From press to online bloggers, GIFs to zines, we want to create anticipation around new Welsh releases so that anyone, no matter where they live in the UK, can find out about Welsh films screening near them.
Please send your CV and a covering letter outlining how you meet the criteria to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for applications is 9am, 29fed October.
