Subject: Call for Flaherty NYC Programmer
Banner 2
THE FLAHERTY is currently seeking proposals for a programmer or co-programmers to curate the 2014 Flaherty NYC program. The programmer/s will be selected to curate either the spring or fall series.  Flaherty NYC is one of the cornerstone projects of The Flaherty, home of the Robert Flaherty Film Seminar.  As the organization celebrates its 60th anniversary, we are eager to engage the New York public with thoughtful and provocative cinema, rich with discussion and discourse, and punctuate it with references to Flaherty Seminar history. That may take the form of: using Flaherty history as a starting point for inquiry; drawing titles from past seminars to illustrate shifts in cinematic movements; or inviting past filmmakers to reflect on their past work and showcase current work.


Venue: New York City (Programmer/s must attend screenings to introduce films and filmmakers)


Number of Screenings: 6 for spring season (2014): 6 for fall season (2014)


Proposals should be no more than one page and include the following:

  1. Theme for the series along with series title
  2. Identify possible film titles
  3. Suggest ways the series will reference the history of the Seminar
  4. Indicate outreach strategies to help build new audiences

The Flaherty office will contribute to the production of events, printing materials; sending email blasts; promoting through social media. Project compensates programmers and filmmakers.


Deadline for submission: October 1, 2013

The Flaherty is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the proposition that independent media can illuminate the human spirit. Its mission is to foster exploration, dialogue, and introspection about the art and craft of all forms of the moving image. The Flaherty was chartered (as International Film Seminars, Inc.) in the state of Vermont but is based in New York City. It was established in 1960 to present the annual Robert Flaherty Film Seminar, which was started five years earlier by the Robert Flaherty Foundation. The Seminar remains the central and defining activity of The Flaherty.


Through its unique annual Robert Flaherty Film Seminar, The Flaherty provides media makers, users, teachers and students an unparalleled opportunity to confront the core of the creative process, reaffirm the freedom of the independent artist to explore beyond known limits and renew the challenge to discover, reveal and illuminate the ways of life of peoples and cultures throughout the world.
