Volunteer for HUMAN International Documentary Film Festival 2019
Volunteers are of great importance to the festival. Every year we get help from committed volunteers that help us create an engaging and inspiring platform for documentaries and debates about human rights.
Volunteering gives you a unique opportunity to see how a festival works from the inside, meet new people, and be part of an inspiring community!
As a volunteer you will work minimum 3 days before or during the festival period, and in return you will get:
- Free entrance to documentaries and other events during the festival.
- Festival T-shirt
- Free snacks and beverages when you work (and a free warm meal if your shift is longer than 7 hours)
- A certificate for your effort
- A fun and inspiring experience!
You can choose from a variety of tasks, but choose only two in the form. If you have a friend you’d like to work with, let us know and we’ll try to put you on the same shift.
Would you like some more responsibility during the festival? Send and email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and lets have a talk.
Promoting the festival:
You will make sure that the festival is visible before and during the fesival. Much of the job is before the festival itself; you’ll be hanging posters around town and distributing programs at cafés, schools, libraries, culture houses and other places where we should have information out. We are looking for those who are not afraid of walking around town even if it snows! Being sociable and extrovert is a plus, and is it an advantage to be well aquainted with Oslo. Do you think an info stand would be good at your school? Send us an email!
Those in this group works a minimum of three days. You will be given specific days before and during the festival, where we divide you into groups who will be tasked with different parts of the city.
You will be a part of the team that works with our social media channels: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and the festival website. This work involves writing status updates, conducting interviews with guests, festivalgoers and others, writing festival reviews and/or taking pictures/video at the festival events. We are looking for those who enjoy being at the center of things, who taks initiative and works well both individually and in teams. We do require that you have experience with Social Media and photo/video.
The flexi volunteers are the outward face of HUMAN IDFF for the audience. As part of this group you will provide information to the audience and guests at our festival stand. You will also help out with different tasks that comes up during your shift; decoration, make sure the venue is looking clean, re-fill programs around the venue, help out during Q&A’s, assist the rush-lines etc. The main task is to be present and helpful for audience, guests, festival staff and the employees at the venues. We are looking for people who are flexible, independent, who works well in a fast-paced situation, but also handles quiet moments, and who enjoys being in touch with people.
Do you enjoy working with texts, and are you good at spotting spelling mistakes? Then you can help us with proofreading of the festival magazine (approx. one month prior to the festival)
Every year HUMAN IDFF hosts several international guests, such as directors, producers, journalists, researchers and activists. Some of them might need help to find the festival venues or have questions regarding their stay in Oslo. We need flexible volunteers who are available to work both daytime and in the evenings. You need to speak good English and be reliable. The needs of the guests varies, so we need flexible volunteers who can set aside 1-2 days where they are available all day.
