The NZ Film Festival Trust is a not-for-profit organisation that is only possible with the support of passionate volunteers and a small team of dedicated staff. Our head office is based in Wellington and is complemented by an Auckland office. We also have fabulous personnel in Christchurch and Dunedin who help in making NZIFF a success in the main centres.
2016 opportunites are posted below as they become available.
If you are interested in applying for one of the Cashier roles with NZIFF 2016 in Wellington, please e-mail you CV and a cover letter outlining relevant experience to Caroline Palmer, Wellington Festival Manager.
We require an army of volunteers to assist with ushering film screenings at our cinema venues around town. We’re humbled by the number of returning volunteers every year but we do welcome new enquiries.
We do require a commitment from Volunteer Ushers to be available prior to NZIFF for one to two hours of training, plus a commitment to be available for a minimum of eight shifts during NZIFF. NZIFF in Wellington will run from 22 July to 7 August, 2016.
