Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival is a 13 days film. It is one of the most important festivals for genre films in the world. It welcomes more than 50,000 spectators every year.
Volunteers will be part of the local team composed of more than 100 volunteers. They will have to be ready to work at least 5 hours every day. Tasks will be clarified continuously during the festival but volunteers will mainly work with the public: ticket control, public circulation, general information… Volunteers might also have to do some physical work before and after the festival. Casual clothes should be enough, but it should also be comfortable in order to be reactive and flexible during the rushes. You will be provided a BIFFF T-shirt. Brussels is a rainy town so be ready for this and don’t expect the temperature to be very hot in April. You must remember that you will spend some times outside for different activities. No specific material is required out of a sleeping bag. After the work, you will be able to enjoy the films and events. The entry will be offered as well as your meals and your pass. You need to write a Motivation Letter.
