Ove Rishøj Jensen
|THE FLAHERTY is currently seeking proposals for a programmer or co-programmers to curate the 2014 Flaherty NYC program. The programmer/s will be selected to curate either the spring or fall series. Flaherty NYC is one of the cornerstone projects of The Flaherty, home of the Robert Flaherty Film Seminar. As the organization celebrates its 60th anniversary, we are eager to engage the New York public with thoughtful and provocative cinema, rich with discussion and discourse, and punctuate it with references to Flaherty Seminar history. That may take the form of: using Flaherty history as a starting point for inquiry; drawing titles from past seminars to illustrate shifts in cinematic movements; or inviting past filmmakers to reflect on their past work and showcase current work.
Venue: New York City (Programmer/s must attend screenings to introduce films and filmmakers)
Number of Screenings: 6 for spring season (2014): 6 for fall season (2014)
Proposals should be no more than one page and include the following:
Theme for the series along with series title
Identify possible film titles
Suggest ways the series will reference the history of the Seminar
Indicate outreach strategies to help build new audiences
The Flaherty office will contribute to the production of events, printing materials; sending email blasts; promoting through social media. Project compensates programmers and filmmakers.
Deadline for submission: October 1, 2013
