Film Series Consultant

The Harvard Ed Portal seeks a consultant to research and advise on film programming. Following seven successful documentary film screening events over the last two years, we are seeking to expand and solidify strategic direction for this core offering of our media arts program. In preparation for the 2017-18 academic year and beyond, the consultant will research and report on the local and national film landscape including the documentary film festival circuit, local filmmakers, current trends in the documentary community, and possible films for inclusion in the Ed Portal’s series. Reporting to the Arts Program Manager, the outcome of this engagement will be a set of recommendations to build the program. The bulk of work may be done either in-office or elsewhere, though the consultant will be required to meet regularly at the Ed Portal throughout the duration of the project. Work is expected to take place in August and September 2017, with some flexibility on start and end dates, and is estimated to take 40-50 hours.
Knowledge of and experience working in the documentary film world. Connections to local filmmakers, programmers, and festival staff highly desirable. Demonstrated ability to work independently and to gather and analyze information strategically.
