Film Submissions Viewers Sought

The Cork International Film Festival (CIFF) is Ireland’s first and largest film festival - a local, national and international celebration of cinema, running for eleven days in November each year in Cork City. Our mission is to present the best annual film festival in Ireland, that connects audiences and artists through a curated selection of great films, and a unique shared cultural experience in Cork. Every year we curate a relevant, high-quality programme comprising 300+ films and events, bringing the best of the international film festival circuit to Cork, alongside new and exciting discoveries. We receive over 4,000 film submissions for consideration, all of which are reviewed and given careful consideration for potential inclusion in our programme.

Cork International Film Festival is now seeking to expand its Submissions Pre-Selection Viewing Team to meet the increasing demand of film submissions. We are looking for keen eyes with a love and knowledge of film of all genres. Perhaps you are an MA student of film, an academic, or working in the film/visual arts sector, with well-developed critical skills and a willingness to donate your time to viewing short films from across the globe.

Viewers must be able to commit to watching a minimum of assigned 20 short films per week, which will range in length from 1 minute to 35 minutes, and to rate them on the Festivals’ online submissions platform, FilmFreeway. Viewing will take place between March and August.

Please note that this is an unpaid volunteer role, with guidance and support provided by the programming team. It provides a valuable opportunity to hone your critical skills and review the latest work of international filmmakers. Viewers are gratefully acknowledged in the Festival Brochure and Festival Website and will receive a complimentary Season Pass to the 2020 Festival.

To apply, please submit a short CV of relevant experience, list of your personal 10 best feature-length Fiction or Documentary films that you have seen in 2019 and a maximum one-page covering letter explaining your suitability as a potential CIFF Viewer, to the email above by 22nd March. Shortlisted applicants will then be asked to review sample short films and participate in a telephone interview. Submitting filmmakers are not eligible to apply.

Cork International Film Festival is accredited by the Academy Awards®, BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television), and the European Academy Awards. The Festival gratefully acknowledges the support of principal funder the Arts Council, along with Cork City Council, Screen Ireland, Screen Skills Ireland, Culture Ireland, Creative Ireland and Creative Europe Media.
