BOLIVIA. WE OFFER 1-3 MONTH RESIDENTIAL TRAINING PROGRAMMES DESIGNED TO
INTRODUCE PARTICIPANTS TO PRINT JOURNALISM AND TV PRODUCTION THROUGH

TALENTED INDIVIDUALS FROM 20 COUNTRIES HAVE WORKED WITH US, CREATING 45

Watersprite 2015

Watersprite is looking for a web technician and a secretary.

Watersprite: The Cambridge International Student Film Festival will soon start preparing for its sixth edition, to be held in March 2015. If you want to play a key role in making next year’s festival larger than ever and support filmmakers from across the globe, then apply now for either of these two integral positions:

Web technician: A slick new website was launched for Watersprite in 2014, and we are looking to build upon our online design aesthetic and the site’s success for this year’s festival. Our content continually needs updating (and let’s not forget about those online submissions!) so we are looking for someone who can help with the day-to-day running of our website, while keeping the content relevant and professional.
As our main site is based in Webfaction, the committee are easily able to upload news items and keep the site ticking over, however you may be required to make one or two tweaks. Your main responsibility will be co-ordinating the online side of our film competitions, managing the submissions database, which feeds into our online viewing and judging portal.
Last year’s online services rep will be on hand to provide support and advice where needed, but you will need prior experience with PHP, CSS, HTML and server management. As our submissions window is limited to 4 weeks, time management and the ability to work under pressure is a must as we expect technical queries to flood in from filmmakers at the end of October.

Secretary: This role offers the chance to join a close-knit committee, gain impressive, real-world experience of organising a distinguished event, and build contacts in the film industry thanks to our professional partners, including BAFTA, MUBI and the BFI. The secretary will be in charge of organising meetings, writing agendas and managing the committee’s online portal. It will be a chance to gain invaluable organisational experience and become play a crucial part in running the festival.

Please send all applications to chloe.harris@watersprite.org as soon as possible.
