Job Opportunity | Brunsick Picture House, Producer

EMPLOYMENT TYPE: Full Time Contract (1 year fixed term with possibility to extend)
REPORTS TO: Business Manager
DIRECT REPORTS: Marketing Manager, Technical/Site Manager, Contractors & Casual Staff
SALARY: $55,000 – $60,000 depending on experience


The Brunswick Picture House has re-emerged — reimagined and better than ever. This unique little venue is located in Brunswick Heads, NSW – a stunning slice of paradise where river meets sea and the daily rhythm is defined by the tide times.
After laying dormant for over 30 years, the curtains lifted on this old theatre in March 2016 and it began a new lease on life, lovingly restored by the creative team behind the award-winning and internationally acclaimed circus/cabaret sensations ‘La Soirée’ and ‘Club Swizzle’.
Having survived the wreckers’ ball and the ravages of time, this iconic building’s revival has set the stage for a vibrant and charismatic mix of film, circus, live theatre and family-friendly entertainment. The Picture House has a capacity of 200 and features a small café, all within a delightful garden setting.
In just a year and a half, Brunswick Picture House has firmly established itself as a local landmark for the community; for people to meet, be inspired, gossip, laugh and be entertained. In return, the local and surrounding communities have embraced the Picture House with an incredible show of love, enthusiasm and support.
We are a core team of provocateurs, carnies, fun-lovers and hard-workers surrounded by a rabble-rousing international family of clowns, divas, acrobats and jesters. And we are looking for a talented human crazy enough to join us on this journey of a lifetime.


This is a role to challenge and excite a professional hands-on leader who is capable of working across all levels of a small not-for-profit arts organisation. The Picture House began its life without any level of public funding and now is the time to develop a strategy for a fully sustainable future.
Principally, the Producer will be required to develop and deliver a film, event and live performance program balancing appeal & excellence with best possible financial outcomes.
You will work with the Marketing Manager and wider team to ensure the Picture House brand, messaging and communications are effective and measurable. You will manage accountability and compliance in legal, regulatory and ethical areas, including OH&S. The Producer will work with the Business Manager in developing and maintaining budgets and fundraising plans and will take responsibility for regular financial reporting, both internal and external. You’ll be wearing hats of various shapes and colours – strategic planning, driving sales, managing day-to-day operations, dreaming up and implementing improvements, seeking out diverse funding and revenue opportunities, contributing to the grind and to the glory. This will include oversight of box office, front of house, site & venue functions and liaison with the kiosk operator to create a patron experience like no other.
In a nutshell? You will take a lead role in consolidating the successes to date and shaping a vibrant and sustainable future.
