The Cinematheque is a cultural and educational institution that excites and educates our community about the art, impact, and legacy of cinema and screen-based media.  Established as a non-profit society in British Columbia in 1972, we are one of the most active film culture organizations in North America, providing more than 500 quality, curated public film screenings annually and an array of other programs, services, and resources, including outreach work serving the wider community.  


The Cinematheque’s Education/Outreach team offers a series of nationally-recognized film and media education programs aimed primarily at students, youth, and educators.  These programs promote critical media analysis, advance understanding of the rich history and current practice of cinema and moving-image art, and foster creative, intelligent self-expression through digital filmmaking production.   We are looking for a dynamic individual with strong managerial skills and a passion for film and media education to lead these programs as our Education Manager


It is an exciting time to join The Cinematheque, with a talented, engaged, and dedicated team in place, a series of inspiring projects underway, and an upcoming provincial outreach expansion in the works.  Candidates should apply not only with relevant leadership skills and experience, but also with an inspiring vision about media education and its future in British Columbia. This position offers the unique opportunity to be a leader and advocate across BC, and demands a passionate, collaborative, and knowledgeable trailblazer to lead our education and outreach programs.
