Thanks for your interest in volunteering to help out at SFL9.
The festival takes place Wednesday 28th April - Monday 3rd May 2010, but we actually need help well before and after these dates, with things like the film challenge and special events at thr Royal Observatory Greenwich.
Every year we have fantastic hard working volunteers, many of whom are daft enough to come back year on year... so I guess they had a good time.
We need people to help give out flyers around London over about four weekends before the festival, help load things in/out of the venue, pack goodie bags and give out Redbull at the all-nighters!
We are also running a 48 hour film challenge in early April and will need people to register teams and hand out information.
Each year we hold a drinks reception (almost a party!) and you will be invited to that, some working, some schmoozing. Those of you working will be handing out canapes, running the cloakroom, helping VIPs find their way etc. See, lots of different stuff you can do to help out.
We will hold a Staff meeting at the venue on a weekday night in late March, where we go through the tasks, the dates and so on.
Volunteering means no money of course, but we can give you some cool swag (goodies like t-shirts and DVDs) and free tickets to most of the festival events.
Registration for the 2010 festival is now closed. Thank you for your interest in helping out, please come again next year.
