Join the Team!

The Berlin Critics’ Week will take place for the seventh time in Berlin from February 10th to 18th, 2021. For the next edition of the event we want to expand our team, so we are looking for idealistic and energetic support. We’d like to collaborate with you if you feel committed to the concerns of the Critics’ Week and in case you can imagine a long-term cooperation with us. We are looking for individuals who can support the project both in terms of organization and curation and who are interested in sparking public debates on the politics of cinema through the event. In return, we offer integration into the central aspects of the program work and strategic orientation of the event series with growing responsibility.

As a counterpart to the parallel Berlinale, Critics’ Week, with its concentrated film and debate program, invites visitors to spend a week reflecting together on films, criticism and the cinema as a cultural space. What are the standards by which films are produced, selected and seen today? Where are films shown, by whom and under what conditions? Who writes about films and how? International guests engage in interdisciplinary debates.

We expect:
• prior knowledge of the organisation of cultural events
• degree in journalism, film, media, art or cultural studies or comparable qualification
• passion for cinema
• excellent knowledge of German or English
• flexibility and reliability

We offer:
• collective creative work in a shared office space
• flexible working hours
• contact with international guests and partners

If you are interested, please send a written application with a short letter of motivation and curriculum vitae by July 31st via e-mail to Petra Palmer via We are also available for consultation prior to application. The selection interviews will take place in the week of August 10th in Berlin.
