Gdynia Film Festival stands for more than 120 films, over 20 accompanying events in several festival venues, almost 50,000 viewers and a wide variety of interesting challenges! You are not required to be a film fan – we need all kinds of enthusiasts at the festival. We will definitely employ your strengths!
POLISH GUESTS SERVICE
Work in this department is one of the most pleasant but also most demanding tasks at the Festival. Film crew service, assisting the greatest Polish filmmakers and full participation in the team’s current tasks as well as viewer service and active cooperation with other departments – these are just some of the challenges Polish Guests Office volunteers face every year.
FOREIGN GUESTS SERVICE
Volunteer work in the Foreign Guests Office includes such tasks as assisting groups of foreign guests, organization of their time and providing help in all current problems, conducting administrative and organization procedures as well as contacting guests regarding their stay at the Festival, accommodation or transport. Volunteers cooperate actively with the International Department team and other departments of the Festival.
Volunteers of the Press Office do not only support journalists’ work but they also have an opportunity to gain an insight into reporter’s work. Apart from distribution of press materials and helping during lectures, conferences, etc., volunteers independently describe the most important festival events. This is a real reporter’s school in which you can polish your journalistic skills!
Volunteer work in the Festival Newspaper department includes writing reports on meetings and festival events as well as interviewing festival participants and guests. Moreover, volunteers participate in printing and distribution of the Festival Newspaper.
