As an assistant curator, you will watch and evaluate works of video art and film from a vast variety of genres and themes. The ideal candidate for this position should possess a critical eye, a passion for art and film, and strong writing skills. We are looking for enthusiastic self-starters who can work independently and in a team. Work is done remotely from home during flexible hours, but candidates should be prepared to periodically communicate with the director/chief-curator via Zoom.
Past selections and programs can be viewed at https://videoart.net/
Candidates should be ready to commit to a minimum of 4 hours of curation per week for 1 month. After completing 16 hours of curation (around 80 films), you will earn the title of Associate Curator and will officially be added to the VAEFF 2020 Team page. Associate Curators will have the opportunity to be a part of the final rounds of curation.
