APRIL 11-17, 2013

Closing period on March 20

Do you want to be a part of the festival team? Do you want to live the festival in a different way? Save the date! Reserve space in your agenda during the week of the April 11 - 17, 2013 and stay tuned for our Open Call in March 2013. Here are some questions you might have and the answers to which will help you decide. 


What is volunteering? 


Being a volunteer allows you to live the festival from within and right in the first row! Volunteers are a fundamental part and the soul of all Film Festivals. Without their participation in important tasks such as guiding the audience at the theater entrance and exit, rounding the public vote ballots, taking photographs during events, or helping at the merchandising stand, none of these would be possible. Join the festival to enjoy it in a unique way. 


What is necessary in order to participate?


In order to participate as a volunteer you just have to be over 18, have a lot of enthusiasm and desire to participate. It’s a task that comes with great responsibility, since the exceptional work of volunteers is the face of the festival! 
 
How much time do I have to dedicate to doing it? 
 
You can participate for as much time as you like. We require a minimum of 3 shifts during the festival. Each shift is 5 hours long and they are divided into morning, afternoon, and evening; we adapt to your availability and the amount of shifts you can work for. 


Is volunteering paid?

There is no compensation for volunteering. However, the festival will give out expense allowances per shift for those who participate. Here are some of the additional benefits: 
 
Not only will you be able to live and discover the secrets of the festival, but we will give you an official shirt you can keep and an accreditation that will give you free access to all of the films in the festival (depending on seat availability at the beginning of each screening). Once every ticketholder has gone into the screening hall, we will open the  “RUSH LINE” which will give access to volunteers until filling maximum seating capacity (access is by order of arrival until filling the maximum seating capacity).

If you’re ready to be part of the festival in this unique way and enjoy the benefits of being a volunteer, contact us as soon as the Open Call is held. Stay tuned for more information here!
