Scribe Video Center is organizing a national touring exhibition of video works produced by media arts centers and independent community producers. This touring exhibition will present a retrospective look at video documentaries produced in various regions across the country over the last 50 years. Selected works will screen at arts centers, museums and other venues across the US. For the planning phase, Scribe is seeking a Project Coordinator/Film Researcher to coordinate this exhibition, including assisting in the research, review and selection of work, writing summaries and synopses, creating marketing materials and coordinating screenings at venues.
The Project Coordinator/Film Researcher will work closely with the Project Director and the Curator to research the history of participatory community media, identify trends in the field and assist in the selection of works. As an excellent organizer and communicator, the Project Coordinator/Film Researcher is responsible for managing communications among the project team, advisors, and national project partners (producers and screening venues). Other major tasks include creating a database of collected materials and making materials accessible to the project team.
