Santa Fe International Film Festival is looking for film screeners like you! SFiFF is seeking volunteer film submission screeners-with the potential for future Programming Associate position if eligible, after a minimum of 1 year on the screening committee-to join our programming team for SFiFF 2023 and beyond. SFiFF received over 3,000 submissions in 2022, and SFiFF's volunteer screeners provided valuable feedback for our programming team to select the top applicants. Potential screeners must be able to commit to watching a very large number of films in an extremely short period of time between February and September (with the bulk of screening between July and August), conveying their feelings in a concise and nuanced manner. It's a delicate, complex process, calling for the utmost discretion along with great taste and understanding of the SFiFF Film Program. Sound like you? If so, we'd love to talk to you about the open positions. Please fill out this form: https://forms.gle/YzuSqU6z4LY6n4bn9 All the best, SFiFF Programming Team If you have any questions or issues with this form, please email: Stephanie@santafe.film
