VOLUNTEERS (All teams)
Print Traffic Volunteers (2 posts)
2 weeks in June, including the Festival period plus training. 2 full-time posts.
This role is about literally getting the films from Festival HQ to the various cinemas - moving film prints and other screening materials from A to B. As well as transporting film drives and reels safely to their destinations you will help keep the film vault in order and update the film tracking system.
You will be organised, a good communicator, ready to troubleshoot if necessary and be alert to priorities and deadlines. Patience, team spirit, a sense of humour and ability to follow instructions and use leg muscles also required.
Part of the Programme Planning team and one of the most essential jobs of the Festival, this is one of the few volunteer roles based in the Filmhouse offices during the Festival itself and giving behind the scenes experience of our cinema venues.
The two volunteers work alternative shifts, usually a mix of half and full days between the hours of 9.30am and 5.30pm.
Please see the EIFF Recruitment Policy in the introduction section for further information on EIFF Volunteers.
