Work with Kinoeye
We currently have no vacancies

Kinoeye is a not-for-profit journal run solely by volunteer staff and as such is unable to offer paid employment (although in some particular cases there are some non-financial perks), however, and of course there is the incomparable reward of feeling you are doing something positive for cinema from the new Europe. Read on for more information.


General information on
working with Kinoeye

No matter where they are in the world, Kinoeye staff keep in touch through a "virtual office" where we discuss upcoming issues and the journal in general. There is no Kinoeye HQ as such, and staff can work from anywhere. For all our contributors and staff, access to e-mail and the web are absolutely essential.

All staff at Kinoeye are part-time volunteers, working in the evenings and at the weekends or whenever their busy schedules allow. The pace of producing a regular journal can be hectic, but we are all highly motivated by our desire to produce a stimulating and challenging website on European cinema and in doing so raise its profile in the wider world.

Kinoeye is willing to help train people in the tasks that they are required to do, but an essential attribute for all staff and authors is initiative and the ability to be proactive.

We invite you to join us.

Festival correspondent

Kinoeye is looking to extend the number of film festivals it covers. We are interested in events which take place both within Europe and outside it. However, in both cases the thrust of all coverage is very much towards cinematic or socio-political developments occurring within the region. See the journal's remit for more information on what we cover.

Kinoeye, in certain circumstances, is able to arrange media accreditation for appropriate authors. Regrettably, we can—at present—offer no other assistance to our festival correspondents.

The assignment

Correspondents will be asked to produce a series of informed and incisive articles based on the festival, possibly including a festival overview, individual articles and interviews. The exact nature of the coverage can be agreed with the editors on a case-by-case basis and Kinoeye is happy to negotiate and open to suggestions.

The correspondent

Correspondents will be expected to have a sound knowledge of the region and of film. An ability to look at film with a wide perspective (ie not just from the context of the cinematic output of a single country) is a distinct advantage.


Send a brief résumé and writing samples to Kinoeye's Editor-in-Chief, Andrew James Horton.

Editorial staff

Kinoeye is looking for part-time virtual editorial staff who can play a proactive role in meeting the exciting challenges that occur in a new journal. Full training can be provided, but the role definitely requires a self-starting, proactive approach and involves some responsibility.

This role is an excellent introduction to the (web) publishing world and is an weighty addition to any résumé.

The assignment

Editorial work can encompass a number of tasks:

  • Copy-editing or proofing texts (requires native-speaker level of English)
  • Maintaining archives
  • Doing research
  • Submitting information to search engines
  • Commissioning articles

There is plenty of scope with Kinoeye for promotion to higher editorial positions for assistants who show themselves to be suitable.

Editorial assistants will be required to work on the majority of issues, although time off can easily be arranged. Assistants usually donate between two and ten hours a week, but usually at the lower end to start with.

The editorial assistant

Editorial assistants should be willing to learn new skills and be prepared to "pitch in." Because there is a large element of training in the post, Kinoeye is only prepared to take on assistants who can commit themselves to the journal for a period of nine months or more.

A desire to learn the basics of HTML and knowledge of the region are definite advantages. An interest in European cinema and good web and e-mail access is essential.


Send a brief résumé and a covering letter explaining your interest in the position to Kinoeye's Editor-in-Chief, Andrew James Horton.

Kinoeye already has a number of loose agreements with several local cinema publications to translate articles into English. Doing this would enable to the column to report on points of view which international festivals cannot offer. All we need is the translators.

The requirements:

Fluency in both English and a language of the region is absolutely essential. A firm knowledge of cinema trends would be a very strong advantage.

Translators would be required to help find appropriate articles, recommend them to the editors and to gain permission for reprinting. The ability to set up new contacts for the journal would be welcomed.
