Apologies for the long bout without any new info. A lot has happened since our last FNFVF Board meeting in June. In the coming months we are looking to fill two vacancies on the the FNFVF Board so we can look at new directions for the festival, which includes expanding our Spring Festival, incorporating an annual fundraising event, and finding a new co-director, possibly, getting a whole new director.
If you are interested in serving on the FNFVF Board, please get in touch. Serving on the board means giving input to the director who runs day-to-day operations of the corporation and festival.
We are also looking for an FNFVF Co-Director to take on the duties of planning and directing the FNFVF INC and the two annual First Nations Film and Video Festivals. This position can be done in concert with the current director but can possibly lead to being to sole director for future endeavors.
For more details get in touch with current Director Ernest M Whiteman III at firstname.lastname@example.org to get a complete job description. Please note that Ernest Whiteman III’s efforts these past nine years have all been on a volunteer basis and while the position of the new co-director/director will start as a volunteer position, it can evolve into a paid position in coming years.
Due to the all that has happened, all of our fundraising plans for the fall are cancelled and any upcoming screening events are postponed as we look for new directions for the festival. The next FNFVF Board meeting takes place in September, if you are interested in serving please get in touch by August 15th.
More information will be forthcoming and will posted on all our social media sites and here on the official website. Thank you for your time and all of your support of the First Nations Film and Video Festival.
Ernest M Whiteman III (Northern Arapaho)
Director, FNFVF INC.
