Film Festival Alliance / STAFF: Building a balanced team

Lani Simeona (moderator)
Running Time:45:00 minutes
Event Date(s)
11:15 AM EST
Friday, November 9

Our first session delves right into staffing, and the many issues that arise with this topic, including interviewing, hiring (seasonal staff, interns), onboarding and parity within your hires. Who is managing the various groups of staff – from full time to seasonal and what is the best organizational structure to handle large groups, of often underpaid, people? What happens when you are the founder of your organization and carry years upon years of institutional knowledge? How do you transition to ensure the longevity of your festival or association to a new regime?
