Working Films brings the worlds of documentary filmmaking and social justice together. We connect movement leaders, organizers, activists, and other change leaders with the right films at the right moment to amplify their efforts and help them meaningfully involve audiences when “the lights come up.” We help mission-driven filmmakers with funding, training, and technical assistance, and we train organizers in how to best use film in their campaigns and efforts for long term change. On issues like racism, income inequality, and the climate crisis, we believe film has a unique power to shift the story and drive change in states and local communities across the nation. Our theory of change centers on the unique ability of documentaries to demonstrate complexity, illuminate the intersections between people and issues, and catalyze action for a just and equitable future

We are seeking an Organizational and Administrative Coordinator  who loves organization and process, and has a passion for social justice, documentary film, and the power of connecting the two. The ideal candidate will be well organized, flexible, have integrity, creativity, initiative, a collaborative spirit, and a sense of humor. We’re looking for someone who can help make sure all of our systems and processes run smoothly, is a strong communicator, and who will make sure our Wilmington, NC office /meeting space is organized and utilized in service of our mission. We need someone who can help us make all of that happen while exhibiting grace under pressure, compassion, and the ability to be both kind and honest. We also want to work with someone who strives to take care of themselves, is able to set boundaries, and who values and aims for a healthy work-life balance. Lastly, we are seeking someone to join our team who works actively toward anti-racism, anti-sexism, anti-ageism, anti-ableism, and anti-classism – both personally and in their work – and somebody who is committed to our core values of collaboration, accountability, grassroots leadership, action, reflection, innovation, justice, equity, and the transformative power of film.
