Calgary Cinematheque is looking for new board members, to be elected at our AGM in November 2017. Cinematheque members and general public are asked to put forward for consideration names of individuals who would make good board members. The submission of a candidate does not necessarily mean that the person will be asked to stand for election. Please consider carefully whether the person you are suggesting can fulfill the responsibilities set out below. Updates will be posted on our website, sent out via our newsletter, and shared via social media. We will update you after our first round of assessment, by September 6, 2017.

Committees with positions available are: Marketing & Communications, Programming, and Governance. Typical monthly commitment would likely be 25+ hours, for committee chairs. Outside of monthly meetings (the first Tuesday of every month), limited committee side meetings, and committee roles, we are looking for specific skills to fulfill certain responsibilities, such as:

  • Availability and ability to introduce films throughout the season.
  • Familiarity with Adobe Photoshop/Graphic Design/Art Direction.
  • Supporting Marketing/Communications Strategy and day-to-day Execution.
  • Programming Experience for festivals and event partnerships.

  • A one-page document outlining your interest and understanding of Calgary Cinematheque and its initiatives, and what you feel you can contribute to the organization.
