Indie powerhouse, Killer Films of New York City, is currently seeking a new assistant to Christine Vachon and Pamela Koffler. We are looking for self-motivated, thick-skinned applicants; those hard-working problem solvers, and team players with great attitudes. Willingness, smarts, and attention to detail are critical. If you want to prove your stripes, this is your chance.
