About FIRST LOOK MEDIA

First Look Media is a new-model media company devoted to supporting independent voices, from fearless investigative journalism and documentary filmmaking to smart, provocative entertainment. Launched in 2013 by eBay founder and philanthropist Pierre Omidyar, FLM was founded on the fundamental belief that freedom of expression and of the press, and the power of storytelling, are vital to both a vibrant culture and a thriving democracy.

About Press Freedom Defense Fund

The Press Freedom Defense Fund provides crucial resources to reporters, news organizations, and sources facing crippling legal threats from government forces or powerful corporate interests that seek to intimidate, persecute, and prosecute, in the U.S. and abroad. Since its founding in 2017, PFDF fulfills its mission by offering direct financial support to reporters and news organizations facing existential legal threats; by marshaling important legal resources to news entrepreneurs that will blossom into important voices in underserved communities; and by training and educating reporters and lawyers on media law, digital and physical security, intellectual property and corporate governance. PFDF fulfills its mission working in partnership with a wide array of First Amendment organizations, While other organizations provide support to ensure information transparency or to engage in strategic litigation, the Fund is unique: no other organization consistently remedies the devastating injury caused to the under-resourced reporter, isolated whistleblower, or struggling news outlet. At the Fund, free speech is regarded as a right, investigative reporting a duty, and whistleblowing an act of bravery.

In 2019, the Fund joined with the Vance Center for International Justice to create Lawyers for Reporters, a pro bono law firm, dedicated to providing legal advice and representation to individuals and news organizations as the field of journalism reels from layoffs and the shuttering of news outlets.

When COVID-19 took hold in 2020, PFDF made direct emergency financial relief grants totaling $200,000 to 190 diverse journalists. The Fund also granted $100,000 to help protect reporters and photojournalists arrested or injured while covering the protests following the police killing of George Floyd. PFDF leads a nationwide effort to study state, county, and municipal regulations on police controlling journalists in protest situations, a coalition that involves 17 law school clinics and national law firms.

We are an Equal Opportunity Employer--people of color, people with disabilities, women, and LGBT candidates are strongly encouraged to apply; we are committed to a diverse workplace, and to supporting our staff with ongoing career development opportunities.
