Do you love ethnographic film? Would you like to get involved in the organisation of a major ethnographic film festival?

The RAI Film Festival is recruiting volunteers to support the 15th edition of the festival, taking place in Bristol 29 March- 1 April 2017. This is a great opportunity to get involved with the festival, to get to know other volunteers, students and filmmakers, and to gain experience in event organising. And you’ll get a chance to watch some great ethnographic films along the way too! All volunteers will receive a free festival pass.

Festival volunteers:
Festival Volunteers help out with the running of the event.
You need to be available from 29 March to 1 April, in Bristol.

Tasks will include: welcoming guests; handing out information&programmes; answering inquiries; helping with setting up and dismantling exhibitors’ stalls; staffing the exhibitor’s room, the video library and the cinemas. There will be a rota, so each person will get to do each job for a limited amount of time, rather than being in one place for the duration. You will also get a chance to attend some of the events and screenings. You will need to know the programme well and help delegates navigate it (you will get some training on this).

To apply please send your CV and a short paragraph about why you want to volunteer at the RAI Film Festival to the Royal Anthropological Institute’s Film Festival Manager, Caterina Sartori at film@therai.org.uk.
