The Melbourne Women in Film Festival are currently seeking an Education Coordinator to join their team. The MWFF Education Coordinator is responsible for overseeing the festival’s education events and programs to ensure their smooth delivery.
The Melbourne Women in Film Festival (MWFF) is an exciting, not-for-profit organisation that aims to inspire and empower established and emerging female screen practitioners through the celebration of women working in the Australian film industry.
Traditionally, women make up only a small proportion of the film crew workforce in Australian and overseas screen markets. While we sometimes (albeit too rarely) hear of works from women writers, directors or producers, we hear even less about women working in the creative technical areas of screen production in roles such as editors, cinematographers or sound designers.
MWFF exhibits the work from collaborative teams of women working in all facets of screen production to help redress this gender imbalance. The festival also seeks to engage diverse groups of women in its programming and throughout the various levels of its organisation.
MWFF successfully raised funds and launched its inaugural two-day festival in 2017. In 2018, the February festival grew to a four-day event, screening 6 feature films, 3 short film programs, 2 panels and a public forum, and a screen critics workshop.
Vision & Mission
