We are looking for a focused and detailed-oriented team player who enjoys juggling multiple projects, proactively communicating, and keeping things on track and running smoothly.

As the Film Financing Coordinator, you will support the content team and partner company PMI’s independent film business.

WHAT YOU WILL DO:

  • Track and coordinate film financing documentation and data from film producers, legal, partners, etc.

WHAT YOU WILL BRING:

You are an organizational whizz who loves to plan-ahead but is happy to go-with-the-flow as things change – and they will, often!  You handle pressure with grace and enjoy working across various projects at once.  If you had to name your top super-power, it would be your clear, thoughtful, and pro-active communication style. You have a post-secondary degree and previous administrative experience.

Excellent working knowledge of Microsoft Suite (Outlook, Word, Excel, Powerpoint) and Zoom is required. Support in production accounting and/or finance departments is a plus. Previous experience in Film, Animation or Game Production not necessary but helpful.
