Board position Trustee of the Film for Change Aotearoa Charitable Trust x 3
We’re seeking three new passionate and committed trustees to help us achieve our vision of filmmaking for a fairer world. New Trustees will be awesome people who share our values, but bring unique and diverse thinking to the table.
It’s an exciting time to join the Film for Change Aotearoa Board of Trustees. The Trust is midway through defining our strategy and setting some clear directions for the future of the organisation. We’re moving into the social enterprise space, developing our leadership team, and working together on an operational plan.
Fifty years in the future we’ll be able to say our people and our films played a critical role in reducing inequality, and creating a fairer world. Film for Change Aotearoa is a collective of film activists who work in partnership with organisations to use short films for good. We are a charitable trust, social enterprise, and network of volunteers who believe in the power of film for social impact.
In the next five years we want: a successful brand, financial sustainability, successful partnerships, empowered volunteers and to keep delivering quality short films that deliver on social impact.
Respect – we will be respectful to, and of, all people and ideas
Empathy – we value active listening and empathy in all interactions
Innovation and Creativity – we live to learn and adapt, we apply creative and innovative thinking to everything we do.
Inclusion – inclusion and diversity of thought are welcomed and actively sought
Fairness – toward a more equal society
Collaboration and Teamwork – authentic partnerships and teams are how we work
He aha te mea nui o te ao? He Tāngata, he tāngata, he tāngata – What is the most important thing in the world? It is people, it is people, it is people.
This is a fantastic organisation to be a part of. Your skills and expertise will be helping volunteer filmmakers and countless community groups. You can truly say you are making a positive difference through your governance and leadership contribution. This is a voluntary role, the Trustees give freely of their time, knowledge and experience.
Trustees will have the standard governance duties: setting and reviewing the strategy, monitoring the performance of the organisation, and so on. But our Trustees also have the opportunity to do more. We want Trustees who can inspire our leadership team, who can challenge each other and who aren’t afraid to question the traditional Trustee role.
