The Communications Manager oversees all public-facing representations of Maysles including website, social media, newsletters, print promotions, and member communications.
They engage and build relationships with press and affiliated organizations to broaden and deepen the reach of our film programming, education classes for Harlem youth and justice-involved young people, and overall mission.
This person works with the cinema intern to oversee and maintain our digital archives, which include photos, videos, posters, and promotional materials and often reflect unique or rare moments in film exhibition.
On occasion, they also work with our team to craft messaging for larger communications campaigns related to fundraising, cultivation, fiscal sponsorship, or otherwise.
We are looking for someone with a thorough understanding of social media platforms, strong writing skills, and the ability to further develop the Maysles brand and digital presence.
This person should be knowledgeable of existing film-specific media outlets and micro-cinema exhibitions.
Skills in web design, video editing, and graphic design are not required but are a plus.
At MDC, we strive to celebrate cinema as a vibrant and life-affirming art form, while drawing from lineages of radical image-making to activate it in the struggle toward collective liberation.
At the same time, film, like all other media, requires ongoing inquiry into its production, histories, boundaries, accessibility, and social functions.
As the Communications Manager will work closely with our small team, we are looking for someone who is passionate about these ideas and excited by the prospect of articulating and sharing our vision with the public.
We will continue to work remotely for the time being, but are looking for NYC-based applicants.
Preferably, this person also has knowledge of Harlem and/or a connection to the local community.
