The Audi Dublin International Film Festival is bringing the world’s best films to Dublin between 21st February – 4th March 2018, and to make sure its programme of over 130 films, special events and guest appearances runs picture perfect, the Festival needs a team of smart, enthusiastic volunteers who are ready to pull together and make the Festival a success.
Help will be needed in areas such as venues, hospitality, office administration, production, ticketing, promotions, marketing and communications so whether you are welcoming Festival-goers to a venue and making sure that they’re getting the most out of the festival or helping behind the scenes at ADIFF HQ it’s a great way to get first-hand insight into the inner workings of an international entertainment event.
The Festival takes its volunteers seriously and is proud of the diverse and committed group of people from Dublin and much further afield who generously give their time and who often return year after year. It’s also a chance for volunteers to build up experience, explore the city in a new way and to make new connections – both whilst on the job and of course relaxing after a film at the Festival Club.
Depending on individual availability, volunteers can either apply to be full-time (a minimum of one shift per day during the Festival) or part-time. Each volunteer needs to be able to commit to a minimum of 5 volunteering shifts.
Volunteer applications are now open! Go to www.diff.ie/about/volunteers for more information and to download an application and make sure to apply before 5pm on January 19th, 2018. You must be over 18 to apply. Questions, comments or queries can be sent to John McHale, Volunteer Coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org.
