IDFA could not exist without the hundreds of volunteers that work for the festival every year.

    Volunteers are an important and intrinsic aspect to the successful organization of IDFA. You will run into them in every corner of the festival: at the theater doors, manning the box office, or delivering the festival daily, lunches and posters. They welcome our guests and audiences, function as our eyes and ears during the festival, and are ambassadors of IDFA thanks to their enthusiasm for the festival. 

    IDFA would like to thank all volunteers that made IDFA 2017 into a succes!

    Around August 2018 signing up as a volunteer for IDFA 2018 will be possible.

    I want to sign up as a volunteer!
