Become a Volunteer


We couldn’t have achieved anything without the help of our volunteers and friends.

They assist with tasks such as catalogue editing, ticketing and managing audiences, making popcorn, helping with the set design of the venues, welcoming guests, driving around the island, digging and scratching, presenting and distributing programs and a lot more.

If you are interested in becoming a team member of Aegean Film Festival and help us keep the magic of cinema alive, then please submit your application below.

Please keep in mind that Aegean Film Festival covers full accommodation, catering and transportation on the island only for some of the non local volunteer positions and cannot provide this benefit for all involved.

However, all volunteers of the Aegean Film Festival enjoy Crew Passes that enables them to watch the films (based on available seating), invitations to the crew party, filmmakers networking event, opening and closing parties and all seminars and masterclasses. Also, all volunteers receive an AegeanFF t-shirt and tote bag, and a big thank you as a mention on our website. Finally, through our sponsors we provide discounts on accommodation, restaurants and boat tickets might be provided as well.

Hope you can join us on the islands and become a part of the ‘Aegean Film Festival Nomads’.
