Every year the Edinburgh International Film Festival involves around 130 volunteers across departments.

Volunteers carry out specific roles across the Festival. Most volunteer posts are one to two weeks long, some lasting up to four weeks. There are roles suited to all levels of experience, providing opportunities to gain new skills and experience, or to use existing skills to support EIFF and help contribute to the Festival’s success. Hours differ from team to team – some have clear daytime shifts, others are more programme or events based – providing a range of opportunities to suit different circumstances and interests.

Please note – some opportunities are subject to age restrictions and so may not be available to under 18s.

Volunteers must be over 18 to perform roles in the majority of teams.
