Here's a hire that will be closely scrutinized and dissected, no matter who gets it: the LA Weekly is looking for a replacement for Scott Foundas.
The L.A. Weekly is looking for a film critic/editor. Candidate must have deep knowledge and appreciation of contemporary film and film history, both international and Hollywood. Must write and edit extremely well in formats ranging from short and full reviews to interviews to longer reported features. Essential duties include planning and managing the Weekly's film section, including special issues; assigning freelancers; occasional blogging. Editor will also coordinate coverage with Village Voice Media for publication of content in 14 newspapers and websites. Ideal candidates will be able to represent the Weekly and VVM at public screenings and other film events, as well as on radio and television.
Apply via craigslist.
