text centered "2022 Film Festival Staffing, Workforce & Compensation Survey
The Film Festival Staffing, Workforce, & Compensation Survey, supported by Elevent and conducted by Sherwood B. Smith of Avenue ISR, looks at current salaries and wages across a range of roles within the festival landscape, current policies on organization culture, and offers insight into suggested best practices from festivals for hiring, retention, and workplace morale.

The three objectives for the survey are:

  • Learn from film festival leaders about their current approaches to using and compensating team members across a range of functions and roles.
  • Determine current policies toward work from home, pandemic response, diversity/equity/inclusion and other current issues.
  • Provide opportunities for film festival leaders to share best practices in hiring, retention and workplace morale.
