HELP US SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT CREATIVE DOCUMENTARY FILMS

Call for Volunteers for the 17th Verzió International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival

APPLICATION DEADLINE: October 15, 2020

Each year we work with ca. 40 volunteers without whom Verzió wouldn’t exist. At least it couldn’t be a vibrant, soulful and human festival. Our diverse team members share similar values: respect for human rights and love for documentary cinema. Many volunteers return year after year, forming a year-round community around the festival. We invite you to become part of our team! Meet filmmakers and learn about the hottest social documentaries of recent years at first hand.  This year the festival goes online due to the pandemic. This also means that the tasks of the volunteers changed as well — this is now all about promotion and communication.

WHAT WE LOOK FOR IN OUR VOLUNTEERS?

  • dedication & reliability
  • interest in human rights and documentary films
  • communications skills & being active user of social media platforms

AS A VOLUNTEER THE MOST IMPORTANT TASK IS:

Promotion and communication: promotion of films and programs on social media platforms and in other creative ways, before and during the festival. Creating posts, inviting people, sharing news, stories and events — make sure the festival reaches as many people as possible.

In return, you can watch some of the amazing documentary films.

To apply please fill out this short application form until October 15, 2020. 

There is an initial zoom meeting for volunteers at 17.00 on October 19, 2020 (tbc)
