Cineclub, The Young Filmmakers Network is a mini-studio system, where children learn to become proficient low budget filmmakers on a sustainable basis. Cineclub is about learning from mistakes and risk taking.

They are recruiting for a small number of filmmaking facilitators within the North West area (incl. Liverpool and Manchester) who wish to join their expanding organisation.  The regional facilitators will train children and teachers in low budget film production, including all pre-production, production and post production activities. These workshops range in duration from 1 day projects to after school clubs, which run one afternoon a week for one or two schools terms. The Cineclub network includes young filmmakers from primary schools, secondary schools and youth organisations.
Candidates will need:

  • A knowledge of low budget filmmaking techniques
  • To have experience running filmmaking activities with children and young people.
  • To be confident and friendly
  • To have an understanding of behaviour management and the challenges of working with young people.
  • You must have an enhanced CRB disclosure or must be prepared to apply for one prior to commencing work with us.

Their filmmaker projects are run as after school clubs, one day workshops and week long summer projects, working with a range of children from primary and secondary schools but also with a range of disabilities and challenging behaviour groups.

Work is on an ad hoc basis. Payments are as follows: £60 per two hour session and £125 for a full day, but this is variable depending on the project.  Selected applicants will be asked to attend an interview where you will be asked more about yourself and your experience in film.

Closing Date for applications: Tuesday 29 January 2013

The interviews will be held on Monday 4 February (Manchester) and Tuesday 5February (Liverpool).

Prior to being offered work, successful chosen candidates MUST attend Cineclub's compulsory two day induction training on Tuesday 26 February and Wednesday 27 February 10am - 4pm. The training will be held at here at FACT.
