Are you interested in helping out as a volunteer during the festival?

News /

Being a volonteer at Stockholm International Film Festival means being in the center of all of the action! We are looking for people who have an interest in film and want to take part in the work behind the scenes with us.

This year’s festival takes place from the 11th to the 22nd of November. Because of the pandemic we have made changes and the festival as well as the volunteer work will be slightly different. We will be following the restrictions presented by Folkhälsomyndigheten to provide a safe work environment and festival experience. This means the work might change depending on restrictions coming forward. Some work areas have been removed and some have been merged. 

If you work at least 6 times you’ll get a festival pass for next year’s festival. If you’ve worked once you’ll obtain a voucher for Festival On Demand that will give you the opportunity to watch the film you want whenever you want.

We hope you are ready for a different but creative film festival.
