Festival Volunteers

Beeston Film Festival


Salary: Unpaid

The Beeston Film Festival is now planning for its FIFTH year and continues to grow and expand to provide an amazing platform for our community to celebrate film and filmmakers.

Every year the Beeston Film Festival recruits a team of enthusiastic volunteers to help with every aspect of the Festival. It’s no exaggeration to say that without these volunteers and interns delivering the film festival would be impossible. If you are interested in volunteering at this years Festival you can sign up below and our volunteer co-ordinator will be in touch with you.

Who is eligible to volunteer?

Volunteers must be aged 18 or older.

You also need to be local to the event as unfortunately we cannot provide accommodation but will cover some travel and refreshments.

Some training and getting to know you sessions will be provided before the Festival, so it is useful if you can be available for those as well. They are great for getting a better understanding of what is involved with the busy Festival and also meeting the other people you will be volunteering with.

The attributes we seek in applicants because we consider them vital to a good volunteer are:

  • a friendly, smiley manner
  • common sense
  • good initiative
  • a strong interest in film
  • fluent English

We have volunteers from a variety of backgrounds, a range of ages and ethnicities and do not discriminate. Volunteer duties include ushering at screenings, assisting with marketing activities, assisting the hospitality team, as well as runner tasks including general office and front-of-house duties to keep the Festival running smoothly. However, volunteers can also be part of the pre-festival preparation too.
