Volunteers

Volunteers are an important and intrinsic aspect to the successful organization of IDFA. They welcome our guests and audiences and are our eyes and ears during the festival. Volunteers are also ambassadors of IDFA thanks to their enthusiasm for the festival.

Policy
There are some requirements for becoming a volunteer at IDFA. They are described in our Volunteer Policy, together with everything that you can expect from IDFA when working as a volunteer.

Application
The application form for volunteers will be available on this page in August. 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.
