DOXA works hard to cultivate an equitable, accessible and respectful environment both in our organizational day-to-day and in festival offerings. The DOXA senior staff is organized laterally, in a non-hierarchical model of leadership. DOXA is a living wage employer. One of DOXA's founding principles is to engage with a diversity of curators, filmmakers, academics and activists to illuminate the intersections of social, economic and environmental injustice. We believe that documentary cinema holds power within moments of social momentum and change, and is a valuable tool in interrogating unjust systems. We also believe in anti-racist education, increased mental health services, income and housing security, harm reduction services, accessible rehabilitation, public arts and cultural programs, decriminalization, transformative justice, and other vital community-based systems. We believe that an investment in documentary film should be informed by a parallel investment in these tools for change.
We strongly encourage applicants with lived experience, from Indigenous communities, people of all races, ethnic origins, religions, abilities, sexual orientations and genders to apply. Your lived experience, as it relates to our work, will be valued. All candidates must be eligible to work in Canada, and must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. These are not work-remote positions, though a hybrid in-office/from home work schedule is accepted.
We thank all candidates for applying; however, only those selected for an interview will be contacted.
