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. For IDFA 2020, all volunteer teams are full. You can still sign up for the back-up list. This year, we only hire volunteers who live in Amsterdam, to prevent unnecessary travel as much as possible.
Please note: if you are from outside the EU, you will need a work permit for the Netherlands. Unfortunately it's not allowed to do volunteer work on a Student Visa.
