VOLUNTEERS (All teams)
Press & Industry Screenings Volunteers (10 posts)
2 weeks in June, including the Festival period plus training. 10 full-time posts.
Press & Industry Screenings Volunteers attend at the screenings which are exclusively for our press, industry and filmmaker guests and visitors. Early risers are best suited for this as the first shift of every day is 8.30 am.
Part of the Industry team, you'll welcome and check passes on entry and you may find that when the cinema is full you have to console those who don't get in - which is a polite way of saying you may have to diffuse their frustrations.
The work is mainly concentrated in the first half of the day with some shifts in the late afternoon and early evenings so you will have lots of time to watch films too. Shifts are usually 4-5 hours long, covering 2-3 films each day, and can be based at any of our cinema venues.
Please see the EIFF Recruitment Policy in the introduction section for further information on EIFF Volunteers.
Winners of EIFF 2014’s short film awards and two of its documentary premieres have been nominated for 2015 BAFTAs.
