A volunteer role for everyone

IFFR is a meeting place for film enthusiasts from many different backgrounds as well as a platform for openness and respect, wherefore the creation of an environment that safeguards freedom of expression without any form of intimidation, discrimination, sexism, or other disrespectful behaviour is essential.

We want to ensure all volunteers feel safe and included coming up to & during the festival. If you have any disability, impairment or sensitivity that you feel may impact your volunteering experience, please feel free to reach out to us (either through the registration form or by contacting us via +31 (0)10 890 90 80  or [email protected]) so we can find you the right team together.

For more information, please refer to the IFFR’s Code of Conduct.
