WHO WE ARE:
We are part of a movement for positive social change that is building a voice and an audience for marginalized perspectives. Originally founded in 2000 as the San Diego Asian Film Festival, Pacific Arts Movement (Pac Arts) has grown to become one of the nation’s largest media arts organizations dedicated to enriching the community through stories of Asia and its diaspora. Our mission is to inspire, entertain, and support a more compassionate society through the Pan Asian media arts. Pac Arts aims to serve the broadest audience possible to transform lives, expand people’s view of the world, and strengthen San Diego’s love of film and film culture. With a budget approaching $800,000, the organization is sustained by a passionate, creative and diverse team of 4 full-time staff, in partnership with our talented contractors and volunteers.
We fulfill our mission by:
Pac Arts produces 2 major film exhibitions each year and a successful youth documentary training program called Reel Voices. The annual San Diego Asian Film Festival (presented in the fall) and the Spring Showcase present a diverse selection of high-quality films from around the world, complemented by meaningful discussions with filmmakers and artists. These two events touch up to 30,000 audience and community members.
As a highly connected nonprofit organization, Pac Arts sits at the intersection of Art, Social Justice and Community Engagement. In 2020 we stepped up to serve as one of the founding members and fiscal sponsor of San Diego’s AAPI Coalition, a collaboration of over 35 different organizations working to stamp out the recent hate and injustices directed at members of the Asian and Pacific Islander (API) community across the US. Our success over the past two decades is based on our healthy and supportive culture and commitment to shared values.
Our Core Values:
This position and this organization go far beyond film and promoting the arts. We don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that this is an opportunity to engage with some of the largest social and economic issues of our time. Pac Arts’ work is central to driving critical conversations, creating, and shaping communities. The Executive Director will have wide latitude to develop and implement their vision for achieving our mission and goals. This is an extremely hands-on leadership position, managing our 4 core team members, supported by 6 additional staff in smaller year-round roles. During festival periods, overall management responsibility can grow by up to an additional 50 volunteers and contractors. It’s a formidable job, but also an incredibly rewarding one.
Our ideal candidate could come from a wide variety of backgrounds. Our main requirements: visionary leadership, organization, relationship building and the ability to make authentic community connections. There are so many ways that can grow and evolve. We seek a passionate and dynamic leader who wants to truly lead, make decisions, and enjoy seeing the direct impact of their work.
