Two people sit in office chairs,, each an iMac and both with laptops, to deliver a livestream during Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival 2021.


Alchemy Film & Arts is proud and excited to be offering a training and development opportunity as part of Film Hub Scotland’s New Promoters scheme.

This position is offered at 2 days or 16 hours a week at the Real Living Wage of £9.50/hour, and the deadline for applications is 5pm on Monday 12 July.

The New Promoters scheme aims to increase the number of marginalised people programming films for cinemas, festivals and venues within Scotland. This includes those marginalised due to race, gender, sexuality, age, class, and disability. The scheme recognises that these identities are not adequately represented within the Scottish screen industry. 

Alchemy is one of six organisations across Scotland hosting the scheme between July and November 2021.

Each candidate will work for one organisation but have the opportunity to meet and engage with others taking part in the scheme through workshops and social meetings (where possible). You will be supported to show films and create events, learn about distributor negotiations, screening formats, film transport, venue selection, audience development and how to create an effective marketing campaign. 

In addition to this we will provide training from film industry experts in selecting and showing films, creating and running events, organising festivals and marketing.

Deadline: 5pm, Monday 12 July
