Teaching Opportunity at Vermont College of Fine Arts

Screenwriting instructor sought:

This is an unusually flexible teaching opportunity in a new, low-residency MFA in Film program at Vermont College of Fine Arts (VCFA). This graduate program involves faculty and students getting together in Vermont for week-long intensive residencies in October and April. The rest of the contact is through one-on-one mentorship via phone/Skype/email/Vimeo, as students create work in their home communities. Learning is project-based, with individualized curricula, in tracks that include screenwriting, live action filmmaking (narrative and documentary), and animation.

We are looking for 1–2 screenwriters to join our founding faculty, which already includes several working filmmakers with compelling bodies of work (http://info.vcfa.edu/mfa-in-film-faculty). The VCFA program seeks to foster the development of distinctive creative voices, and we are not looking for a by-the-book approach to screenwriting. Applicants for teaching positions should be committed to exciting writing (in any genre), and have at least one produced screenplay to their credit. Professional experience will weigh most heavily, and an MFA or teaching experience is not required.

Please email a brief note of introduction and CV to Laura Colella at Laura_Colella@remove-this.Brown.edu.

Faculty Positions: Film & New Media, NYU–Abu Dhabi

New York University has established itself as a Global Network University, a multi-site, organically connected network encompassing key global cities and idea capitals. The network has three foundational, degree-granting campuses: New York, Abu Dhabi, and Shanghai, complemented by a network of over 15 research and study-away sites across five continents. Faculty and students will circulate within this global network in pursuit of common research interests, and the promotion of cross-cultural and interdisciplinary solutions for problems, both local and global.

NYU Abu Dhabi seeks to make tenured, tenure-track or contract appointments of two faculty members for its Film & New Media Program: (1) a proven scholar in Cinema Studies with expertise in any field of film history, theory and criticism, preference for associate- or full-professor level, junior scholars may apply; (2) an open-rank search for a dynamic professor of Animation. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to play an integral role in fashioning a complete international research university oriented around the liberal arts. We are looking for scholars and artists who maintain an active agenda of research or artistic activity, have publications or artistic accomplishments appropriate to their rank, and have demonstrated commitment to undergraduate teaching. Interest or affiliation with the region is welcome. Please visit the Film & New Media Program’s website for a description of its innovative curriculum:

Development Assistant

Writer–Author

Seeking a dynamic, professional author, editorial coach, and chronicler to co-produce a pivotal book about the history, current creators and relevance of social movements.

The book will reveal the whodunits, critical lessons learned, and art of past popular movements -- from labor rights to civil rights to women’s suffrage, anti-apartheid, LGBT rights, etc. The book will surface current organizers and artists who are innovating and nurturing activism in today’s environment from the Quebec and Chilean Student movements to the Dreamers, Zapatistas and LGBT. This will be the story of how marginalized and well-known movement leaders have bent, and are bending, the arc of history toward justice. Through art, narrative, online music and other tools, the book aims to inspire those interested in social change to join the movements of our day – and to do so boldly, creatively and effectively.

The audience envisioned comprises people searching for the heart of past transformative movements and who wish to apply the principles gathered over time to current dilemmas and efforts: grassroots community organizers, youth leadership programs, political strategists and activists, students, parents and educators, philanthropists, academics and the concerned general public who are looking for ways to make a difference.

The project is being seeded by the Schott Fund based in Cambridge, Mass. The work will include developing a strategy and proposals for publishers, conducting research (much of which has begun) and interviews, developing avenues for multimedia dialogue as the work progresses, and, ultimately, writing the book with significant input from the Fund’s co-founder who has started the research and writing.

Candidates must have a background and interest in social movements, as well as demonstrated skills as an able story teller, interviewer, researcher and documenter, and, preferably, success in book publishing. S/he must foremost be a writer who is able to create crisp and poignant stories and extract useful lessons from research. The ideal person is able to work independently and collaboratively while taking the lead with both structured and unstructured guidance.

This project requires a half or full-time commitment over a minimum of a year-long period (likely longer); excellent salary commensurate with experience.

If interested, please send resume, short writing sample and cover letter to janetgrogan@remove-this.comcast.net
