Indigenous impact producer


The Lake of Scars will towards the end of 2021 be engaging on its impact campaign surrounding the issues of Indigenous heritage protection, reconciliation and environment, over the period of its release at the end of 2021. The Lake of Scars is supported by the Victorian Aboriginal Heritage Council, Dja Dja Wurrung Clans Aboriginal Corporation, Eucalypts Australia and the Documentary Australia Foundation. It features Uncle Jack Charles as storyteller.


We have secured funding to hire an up-and-coming Indigenous impact producer, ideally based in Victoria, on a short-term, contract basis. This person will be carrying out an impact plan pulled together by experienced impact producer Alex Kelly (In My Blood It Runs, amongst other films). It is a great paid opportunity for someone looking to break into the documentary impact space and learn from the best (Alex!). 


Along with the film’s distributors, the impact producer will be responsible, for a period of approximately three months, for developing relationships with a range of potential partners; including but not limited to, arts and government organisations, community organizations, educational institutions, galleries, cinemas and more.  


The ideal candidate will have:


  • Experience in fostering relationships between organisations in the arts, government or community spaces.

  • Good contacts in this space, in Victoria and beyond

  • Experience in planning events and workshops.

  • Some experience dealing with contracts and budgets.  

  • Good communication and an outgoing personality.

  • Passion for making change in the highlighted areas.

  • Documentary/film/media experience is an advantage.


The film has distinct impact goals and plans and a great list of collaborators on board. Details to be fine-tuned, but we envisage 2 or 3 days per week for 2/3 months, depending on the candidate’s availability. Drop us a line here if you're interested.
