Position Description

Full Spectrum Features (“FSF”) is one of the Midwest’s leading film and media nonprofit organizations working to increase diversity, equity and inclusion in the independent film industry. As a BIPOC-led/founded organization, FSF has developed numerous programs that address systemic issues that have historically prevented people of color, women, LGBTQ-identifying individuals, the disabled, and other marginalized groups from fully participating in the creation and exhibition of independent cinema. The Leading Edge Fellow will assume a key leadership role in designing and executing Hidden Histories, a teacher training program that will enable K-12 teachers to utilize FSF’s award-winning digital humanities programs to teach history in the classroom. Branches of the Virginia Public Library will serve as key locations for hosting professional development seminars for K-12 teachers, and public humanities programming. The fellow will play a crucial role in developing and releasing Hidden Histories, which will serve as a model for teaching other histories of marginalized people through narrative cinema.
