To be considered for a position, you must apply for a specific job, following the instructions in the job posting.
Attach your cover letter and resume as one document titled “FirstName LastName – Position Title” in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (ex: Kim Taehyung – Manager, Programming).
Please include in the subject line: ATTN: Hiring Committee – [Insert Position Title]. This is important because Zapier automatically downloads PDFs with this subject line to a folder for the Hiring Committee to review. If it doesn’t match, your application may get lost in the hundreds of emails received.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
(1) Can I work remotely? Do I have to work in the office?
RPFF is a hybrid workplace and we ask that staff be in the office 1-2 times per week, including for our full staff meeting (currently on Tuesdays). Also, as we’re an event-based organization, we require all staff to be onsite for all our events throughout the year, and for pre-event prep work days. Therefore, it’s not necessary to be in the office all the time, but we’re a small team so it’s important that everyone be present for each other.
(2) Is a cover letter really necessary?
You’ll see from our job descriptions that we don’t require people to have education or direct experience in the role. We’re open to hiring individuals with different perspectives and experiences who are eager to transfer their skills to the role, BUT we may not immediately see how your skills are transferrable – so tell us!
Also, if the role requires a lot of writing, a cover letter is a way for you to show off your skills in that area. It’s also a way to show off your personality and highlight things you’re proud of in your past roles, or talk about how you connect to the mission of RPFF.
Please don’t include your cover letter in the email, we read the PDF you attach!
(3) How often do you host events?
Our year-round programming changes year-to-year, however two of our events are consistently offered each year: (1) Under the Stars, our annual summer outdoor film series, happens every Wednesday evening in July; and (2) our Annual Film Festival at the end of November.
(4) How often do you hire contract or temporary positions at RPFF?
Each year we hire 3 Coordinators on a contract from May to December to help with our two major events. Leading up to our Annual Film Festival we also hire people to fill short-term roles such as Production Manager and Volunteer Assistant.
