Call for volunteers 2018
May 26 – June 15 2018
With the second edition of BEAST IFF taking place between 26 – 30 September 2018, we are opening the first round of call for volunteers giving time for you to choose how you want to participate in the festival! Being a volunteer means being part of an international team, meeting a lot of like-minded people, sharing your own skills and learning in return. Some of the friendships and the good memories last for a lifetime! We need you, so we can build a bigger and better festival for everyone.
