Our volunteers are a valued and essential part of the work we do. Find out more and apply below.

We offer a variety of positions and roles, all providing valuable experience and exposure to those trying to break into the film, arts, and events industries. You can get involved in guest liaison, marketing, ticketing, ushering, event support and more.

The festival fosters a pro-active environment for volunteers, providing you with a free film showing of your choice, and of course an Encounters t-shirt and bag!

If you would like to volunteer for the 24th edition of Encounters from 25-30 September 2018, please fill in the form below.

Deadline for festival volunteering is Friday 17 August, but we accept volunteer applications all year round for ongoing marketing activity.
