Cinema Scandinavia is hiring!

Love Nordic film and TV? Why not come work with Cinema Scandinavia!

Over the last two years Cinema Scandinavia has written about Nordic film and television all around the world, and now the website is looking to expand. We are looking for new staff members to help build Cinema Scandinavia into a successful and popular bimonthly publication. This is an exciting opportunity to jump on board a growing publication and help develop it into the key source for Scandinavian film.

  • Attend major film festivals
  • Interview important industry members
  • Review new films
  • Write news stories for the main website
  • Come up with marketing ideas and new publishing platforms
  • Helping edit and co-ordinate the bimonthly magazine

This position will start off as unpaid, but all festival trips will be funded and as the website grows it will become a paid position. Please email us if you want us to elaborate on payment. As this is the case, this position is suitable for someone who is passionate about film first.

We are looking for someone who….

  • Lives in Europe (but preferably the UK or Scandinavia)
  • Has excellent understanding of English
  • Has fresh and exciting ideas for the publication
  • Has written about film and television before
  • Some understanding of a Scandinavian language is important, but not necessary

    I watch every Scandi television/film that comes to the UK (mainly on Sky Arts). I watched “Occupied” twice and cannot wait for the second version. The filming was fantastic, riveting. The casting was so perfect that I cannot imagine the actors are actors. I also have watched, “Thicker than Water”, “The Legacy”, “A Royal Affair” (love the Enlightenment!), “Dag,”, “Beck”, the amazing, “The Bridge”, “The Girl who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest” and the three narrative film, “30 Degrees in February. Great music score. ” Watched the latter twice, as well. Scandinavian cinema/television is now a world entity. Keep it coming. Patricia Welles
