Birds’ Eye View (BEV) is a campaign for gender equality in film. We spotlight, celebrate and advocate films created by women, and support women working in film. We are a charity and an organisational partner of the British Film Institute, funded by an award from the National Lottery.

In 2018 Birds’ Eye View launched Reclaim The Frame with a mission to grow ever-greater audiences for films by women, and build a more balanced film future.Individuals can support the programme by becoming Influencers, which entitles them to free codes for films we support as well as free tickets to events plus a 3 month MUBI subscription, find out more here.

We have networks in 15 cities UK-wide. The funding for this role is Greater London specific so that will be the geographical focus on this short term job.

Role:

Birds’ Eye View are looking to recruit a highly motivated and experienced Community Liaison Officer who will play an important role in engaging disadvantaged and excluded communities in London to take an active part in Reclaim The Frame (our established audience development programme).

These communities include, but are not limited to, those affected by Covid 19, sheltering from domestic violence, and the socially isolated, including those with a disability or mental illness.

This outreach pilot will focus on developing partnerships with community groups and charities to reach them. Birds’ Eye View will offer these groups free access to online films (and in cinemas when we reopen and if appropriate for the audience) as well as free DVDS for those without internet access at home. 

It is our intention to offer captioned and audio described versions of the films we will support to these groups whether they are being watched online, in cinemas or on DVD. We will also endeavour to have BSL interpreters and live captioning at our events.

You will work alongside the Campaign Manager and Director-at-Large, liaise with our stakeholders (Birds’ Eye View Board) and contribute to discussions with our partners in distribution and exhibition as we seek to increase engagement with those specified communities.

The right candidate will have a keen passion in engaging communities with the creative arts sector, excellent communication skills, a thorough working knowledge of community liaison marketing/partnerships and will have an established network of contacts to bring to the role. 

They will furthermore understand the importance of creating and maintaining relationships in order to discover opportunities that support the aims of the pilot. They will be comfortable working in a fast-paced environment and be able to work across multiple events whilst maintaining an acute eye for detail at all times.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious person who is looking to further their career in the outreach sector as well as in film and the arts. You will be part of an important programme affecting change and expanding the audience for films by women in London.
