Open Call Programmers of the Future
New generations of public, programmers and curators are growing up in a fundamentally different and constantly changing society. Equality and inclusion, the need for a different relationship with nature, and rapid innovations in the field of digital culture are a daily reality. To serve a new, more diverse generation of audiences, the cultural field also needs to change. Cultural institutions must adapt and innovate. Eye Filmmuseum has therefore launched Programmers of the Future, a programme for future programmers of cinema and the art of the moving image.
Programmers of the Future is designed as a bilateral exchange that exemplifies the most progressive and effective educational and cultural practices. Eye Filmmuseum is not only committed to sharing its network, infrastructure and extensive expertise in the field of film history and programming with the recruited participants, but also eager to listen to and learn from them. Moving away from traditional top-down hierarchies is an integral part of our spirit and the way in which we continually strive to innovate.
Eye Filmmuseum is looking for:
Three ambitious participants to shape the first year of the programme:
Programmers of the Future
(32 hours per week, 0.83 fte)Periode
Programmers of the Future is a 10-month course in which the participants dedicate 32 hours of their time per week. During the course, participants come to understand all that they need to know about film programming, while also sharing their own new ideas and inspiring other programmers at the museum. The curriculum covers a wide range of subjects: How to make connections between archival material and contemporary works? How can you analyse the zeitgeist in which a film was made and relate this to the present? What parallels can you draw between cinema and cinematic contemporary art productions?
The course functions as an intensive educational project in which the three participants closely work together, follow private classes in programming (reflective, analytical and practical), and participate in studio and museum visits, artist talks and excursions. Participants also work on an individual audio-visual project to be presented at the end of the course. They receive assistance in developing, deepening and realizing their project during the programme.
