Film Release Coordinator
Do you love documentaries? Are you a creative, organisational maestro? 

This is an exciting position for someone looking to play an influential role in a cutting-edge film company. 
The Company

Journeyman Pictures is a global distributor of documentaries, distributing films to TV channels, international cinemas, platforms like Netflix, iTunes and Amazon, and educational organisations around the world. From Sundance-winning films to topical investigations, the company has a diverse and eclectic international catalogue of award-winning, cutting edge docs. 

The company represents many of the top directors, producers and TV channels around the world and holds a position at the forefront of developments in the documentary industry. 

The Role

Journeyman acquires critically-successful, top festival and TV docs throughout the year. When we sign up a new film you will be responsible for arranging the timely delivery of the necessary materials from the filmmakers to us. 

You will then be responsible for overseeing the editorial presentation and release of each documentary across multiple platforms, including our website, social media and VOD platforms such as Amazon and iTunes, working closely with our digital department each week to make sure a complex release schedule runs smoothly and our films are presented in the best way possible.  

You will also work on publicity, mainly social media-based, working alongside our filmmakers to come up with ideas and drive the creative promotion of our new releases.

You will be an ongoing point of contact for our filmmakers, keeping them informed of our activity on their films as required and handling any other necessary communications with them. 

You will be responsible for all screening requests of our films, liaising with international film festivals, independent cinemas, universities and community groups to facilitate our films being played at their venues. 

There will also be the opportunity to help with acquiring new films, through developing relationships with filmmakers, keeping abreast of festival releases and handling some negotiations. 

The Ideal Candidate

You will need to have very strong communication and organisation skills to succeed at this role. 

You will need to be a self-starter, able to coordinate a complex agenda effectively without direction and relish the challenge of being part of a busy team and a growing company. 

The ideal candidate will combine killer organisation with good writing skills and a big dollop of creativity! 

Salary

Salary will be dependent on experience. The role is eligible for company bonus scheme.
