Festival organisers are looking for enthusiastic individuals to cover various roles during the festival including info desk, greeting delegates and filmmakers, managing guest lists, manning the video library and delegate areas, supporting marketing and administration staff, supporting print transport staff, manning the delegate bar, and other activities.
Volunteers will need to commit to at least three eight-hour shifts or six four-hour shifts during the festival week (14-21 November) and be willing to attend an induction on Monday, 14 November.
Encounters programme coordinator Rich Warren said: “The festival relies on the help of its volunteers and without this support the festival would not be possible. Encounters offers a variety of positions and roles which provide valuable experience and exposure to those trying to break into the industry.”
