Cinema and Film Coordinator
Institute of Contemporary Arts
For 75 years, the ICA has used its buildings and platform to celebrate the arts, influence culture, and bring people together to share radically progressive ideas. As we face some of the most complex ecological, economic and social-justice challenges ever seen, both nationally and globally, the ICA’s critical approach is needed more than ever. Over seven decades, the ICA has staged numerous ground-breaking exhibitions, legendary concerts, and its cinema continues to be a major voice in independent film. Today, our programme – across exhibitions, performance, cinema and film, theatre, music, architecture, design – is dedicated to issues of racial justice, social justice, and the championing of voices at the forefront of progressive culture.  

The ICA Cinema department delivers a world-class programme of films and national theatrical releases, creating a unique space for discussion and debate. Through premieres, festivals and curated seasons, this programme brings to screen new voices, discoveries and experimentation. This Cinema and Film Coordinator role is an exciting opportunity to contribute to a programme that encompasses significant film and moving image developments, while acknowledging historical works and filmmakers from the margins of traditional cinema.

The successful Cinema and Film Coordinator is responsible for supporting the Head of Cinema and working alongside the Film Programme Manager in the development, planning and delivery of the ICA Film Programme, the ICA CINEMA Distribution activity, and the annual FRAMES of REPRESENTATION (FoR) film festival. This role requires reactivity and flexibility. It offers potential to grow and welcomes initiative-taking.

Contract: Fixed term/ Full-time until Mid-December. Part-time from Mid-December until 31 March 2022.

Salary: £22,000 – £25,000 per annum, depending on experience (pro rota for 4 days per week)
