Do you want to peek behind the scenes of a film festival, spend your free time meaningfully, and meet friendly people? Then you're in the right place!
 

We are looking for volunteers to join us in planning and organizing the 7th Taiwan Film Festival Berlin, taking place in September 2024, in Berlin, starting from the Spring of 2024.
 

If you have a few hours a week for volunteer work, you can apply to become a team member. Team members actively contribute to organizing the festival – you can engage in various areas and take on different responsibilities both during the preparation phase and throughout the festival. This is an opportunity to showcase your skills or discover entirely new fields of activity. In return, we expect our team members to regularly participate in team meetings (via Google Meet or in person, approximately every weeks for 2-3 hours), and ideally, be fully present during the festival and for setup and teardown.

We are also happy to provide a certificate of volunteer service.
