About the role:
This role is an exciting opportunity to join Broadway and collaborate with partners across the Midlands region to discover and support writers, directors, producers, and other creatives working across different disciplines, at the early stages of their film careers. The role will include supporting talent to access film funding; providing editorial expertise on funded projects; supporting professional development; and promoting opportunities available through BFI NETWORK and beyond. The Talent Executive will sit within Film Hub Midland’s team, working alongside another Talent Executive and will report to the Film Hub Manager, with guidance and support from the UK wide BFI NETWORK. They will place inclusivity at the core of talent development and work closely with the other Talent Executive to ensure that the widest range of people are aware of, and can access, the funding and networks and that the regional offer is as responsive to need as possible.
You will be an engaged connector of people, committed to inclusion and passionate about film with the ability to understand new ideas and how they can be supported, developed and shared. You will be comfortable working collaboratively and creatively and possess solid project coordination, organisational skills and pragmatism. Given the geographic spread of Film Hub Midlands and the current operating context, you will need to be prepared to connect with talent virtually and in person when safe to do so. You will preferably have experience in event management, commissioning and in designing talent development activities for new creatives. As you will lead the commissioning and production of short films, you will also need project management skills, experience of budgeting and effective administration.
