Part Time Equipment Staff
We seek a part time Equipment Staffer to work under the supervision of our Equipment Manager and Media Arts Lab Technical Director in support of the activities of the organization and its educational programs. An ideal candidate would have a solid grounding in digital media equipment and a strong desire to expand that knowledge and grow their skills in a collaborative environment.
The Film Center and Media Arts Lab utilize a wide range of digital production equipment such as video and still cameras, microphones, portable audio recording devices, Macintosh and Windows computers, lighting equipment and various other production equipment.
Over 100,000 students in grades 3-12 and college have participated in our education programs, more than 50% of them from underserved communities throughout the tri-state area. Their participation, including transportation, is funded entirely by the JBFC, thanks in part to support from individuals, foundations, and corporations. Programs range from film, animation and new media production to experiments in emergent technologies – each course helping students master the tools of 21st century communication while fostering intellectual curiosity and creative exploration.
The JBFC Theater houses five screens and is open to the public 365 days a year. Exhibitions include first-run independent features, previews, classic films, and documentaries from around the world. Each month, we present two to four curated series including annual and monthly programs, as well as special one-time events and retrospectives on important film artists. More than 150 directors, actors, authors, scholars, and other remarkable guests come to speak with our audience each year.
