Since 1912, Curzon Cinema and Centre for the Arts has been an integral part of the Clevedon community, providing a space for film screenings, performances, and live events. Our historic building and extensive archive reflect the architectural, social, and technological history of film, making it a unique landmark and social hub in the community.

• Film and cinema industry: Experience of a working knowledge of film and cinema history and the film industry

We are committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive Board that reflects the rich tapestry of our community and actively encourage applications from individuals from under-represented groups, including those from the global majority. We are currently in the process of developing an anti-racism action plan which will review all aspects of our business, from film programming, to our audiences and marketing, to staff and volunteer recruitment, and welcome applicants with a passionate desire to help us diversify our organisation.
