The Northwest Film Center welcomes résumés from independent mediamakers with an interest in teaching at the adult or youth level on an on-call  basis. Commitment to an arts perspective and an active film practice are a must. Previous teaching experience is desirable but not required. Filmmakers may propose a specific class or workshop, or indicate a general interest in joining the team of teaching artists who support our education programs. We are especially interested in hearing from filmmakers with a practice in sound recording, motion graphics, computer animation, sound design and colorizing.

Send a résumé, filmography/links, and letter of interest to our Education Director

with “Teaching Opportunities” in subject line

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
