Volunteer at NZIFF

We love volunteers!

If you’re passionate about film, event management and/or communication then consider volunteering with NZIFF. We offer a friendly environment with flexible hours, copious amounts of tea and coffee, plus complimentary movie tickets. Sometimes there's also homemade cake.

We'll open our call for volunteer interest in other parts of the country from March 2018.

Wellington Volunteer Usher

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 27 July to 12 August, 2018.
